Just curious, but:

How did you bend the steel fork?

Do you think a ti fork will be stronger?

Inquiring minds do want to know...how did you bend it? Are you okay? That should be the first question.

I bid on the same exact auction earlier today but lost it in the last few seconds. It went for $400 and change.

I saw the above link risted a few hours later and the seller says he had two of the same fork. Same dimensions listed, but the 3 photos he put together were changed in order...I call BS and it seem like its a scam. Two of the exact same for that fork? I dont know man seems fishy to me....

Seriously, someone shoot this guy an email thru ebay and question him about having the same fork listed...

Something to do with an overnighter, a porcupine, and large downfall after the heavy winds last week...

I'm good. The fork and frame, not so much...

I had a Black Sheep Titanium fork made for my Gary Fisher Superfly and LOOOOVE it.

I also have a Chris Kelly steel 29'er fork that I would sell for $850....




....it comes with a Chris Kelly Ro Sham Bo 29'er singlespeed frame and some sweet parts :D

Why is everything on ebay always a scam? The guy has 176 feedbacks with 100% positive. Why is it so hard to believe that someone has two of the same fork?
