FS OUZO PRO Fork

As per my thread a few weeks ago I bought a new fork

Selling a Reynolds Ouzo Pro details as follows

1 1/8 straight steerer
27 cm from base plate
Compression plug installed
Brake nut included
Chris king base plate included.

Not sure of rake. Serial number gone. I assume it's a 43.

I've put 10 000km on it and probably had about the same when I bought bike.

How does $130 usd shipped from Toronto sound? If price way off let me know.

Have pics. Will post tomorrow. Need to resize.

Pics as promised.

Also for clarification shipping (about $30USD) and all paypal fees are included.

Shipping will be done by canada post / usps and is guaranteed in 4-5 business days.

Fork has a dropout spreader and is encased in pipe foam wrap so limited worries of damage.

Without knowing the rake angle on this fork why would anyone buy it? It's sorta a critical dimension. Do you know what frame it came off of and the recommended rake of the frame? That may give someone a warm fuzzy of what the rake it's supposed to be.

I bought an EDGE fork for cheap when they lost the rights to EDGE. I thought I bought the right rake. Bike rode terrible VaMoots SL I called Jon @ Moots it took a long conversation but we finally determined I went the wrong way with the rake. Even at the discount it was an expensive mistake. Once the rake was sorted out it rode amazing. Way better than the LOOK HSC3 that had all kinds of brake studder.

Because some of us just don't care.

It's pretty easy to determine rake. A flat surface a block of wood or such and something to measure with.

The fork came off a 62.5 vamoots sl so if it matches moots' suggested fork rake it should be a 40.

When measured it looks like it is a 43.

The 40 that replaced it made the high speed handling (60km hr) more stable.
