This is the new "Lite" version of the original Barnacle fork:
-Double-butted tubing and lighter construction (weights about 200g less)
-Fewer mounts, slimmed down to 1 set of triple cage mounts per side
-Raw finish. Tig welded, brazed, sandblasted, polished, then clear powder coat
The steel will eventually rust under the clear coat. This will be purely visual, but consider yourself warned if it's not something you're into!
Designed for 80’s and 90’s 26″ mountain bikes, ideally replacing the original rigid fork or a short travel (max 80mm) suspension fork. Will make most / cross / hybrid / gravel / ATB bikes pretty siiick too.
The axle to crown measurement is 400mm. This is a critical element of it’s design, as running a fork thats even just 20mm too long will do all kinds of terrible things to a bike’s handling and self-esteem.
It has 43mm offset which is similar to what most retro mtb forks had. Results in a mid to high trail number on frames with a 70-73 degree head angle. Loaded or not, fast or slow, it just friggin works.
The steerer is 350mm long which should be plenty for most folks out there, even if your headtube is over the 200mm mark.
- Clearance for maximum 26×3″ 27.5×2.6″ or 700x48mm!
- Passed the gnarliest lab test (ISO 4210 at MTB level) and definitely lived up to expectations in real life riding as well!
- ED coated to help protect against internal rust, and a solid gloss black powder coat for resilience!
- The QR version is disc and rim brake compatible (ETRTO 559 / 26″)
- Hardware included: M5x12 black stainless T25 bolts
- Removable brake studs included on the QR version
If your frame has a 1″ headtube, consider grabbing a 1″ headset + spacers and stem shim! Or tap some threads onto the steerer to run a quill stem.
Made in Taiwan.
