Thanks, William!

I vary the forks based on the bikes. Within typical road bike ranges, the differences between curved and straight raked forks are mostly academic. I can better tune the fork with the choice and cut of the blade. For certain outliers there may be functional drivers, but generally it is an aesthetic choice. The two bikes have very similar contact points. The forks above are virtually identical in length and rake. They ride pretty much the same.

As far as the jerseys go- YES they are available. I order these in small batches based on demand. They are made by Harth at Wabi Woolens in Portland, and embroidered locally. They are the Sport Series, and are pure luxury. Same price as Harth- $175. If any one is interested in getting on the next batch, shoot me an email.
