The infamous Stridsland 26" fork

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 coated.

Will it rust? Abso-forking-lutely. – Yes, yes it will, and it will look sick!

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.

It’s got all the mounts so you can make any old bike a bike camping bike. Almost any rack out there will fit.

  • 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!
  • The QR version is disc and rim brake compatible (ETRTO 559 / 26″)
  • Hardware included: 22pcs 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.
