Yes, the fork has passed testing and the manufacturer is tooling up for it. So not too long, but not tomorrow either. Totally happy with the TRP in the meantime. I would not hesitate to recommend it.

For the summer I've mostly been riding the Gaulzetti as pictured: carbon wheels, fat Compass tires, handlebar bag, road gearing. It's proving the perfect mix of fast road bike-like handling and convenience.

Works for me, Sandy - except the handlebar bag! (A bit like a fanny pack on Kate Upton...)

Enjoy. It's your bike, not mine!

Ha, I'll respectfully disagree! Handlebar bag looks great, IMHO. That said, I think I might put a Tubus Fly rack on my '80s RS road bike, so my judgment might not be so great.

The tubus fly is a great rack. I really like nine.

That handlebar bag is a lot like a fanny pack on Kate. kate can wear a fanny pack, I wouldn't question it.

Fork

Are you ever going to get the Gaulzetti fork? or just keep the TRP and paint to match? I've got the same TRP fork on my Marin CX bike.

They're approaching production so I'm assuming I'll get it eventually but I'm not really holding my breath. The TRP is such a good fork that I had honestly forgotten I was ever going to get the 'zetti fork. I have about 1000 miles on this one already so it's kind of gone beyond a loaner anyway...

As for the bar bag, gotta keep my snacks somewhere!

Gaulzetti Ultraline

Is the Gaulzetti fork intended to be the same length as the TRP? Sounds like it handles great (wheelbase looks appropriately tight), but that fork just *looks* long.

Cool Awesomesauce

Having studied Metals and Jewelry in College, I can imagine the filing that went on for all that smoothness.

Best drop outs I've ever seen & I've been riding for 42 years. Hats off to you. Will love to see it built. Please post when you do.

Here here, loving the TRP on my new rig, just wish the internal clearance was a little larger up at the crown, havent test fit any fatties in there but it doesnt LOOK like there would be enough space for a 650B 2.0 (which enve and whisky can clear).

That said, if you/craig wanna unload that very used and very abused - - fork when you are done with it, gimme a shout!

I've posted a few built pics over the course of the thread. Thanks for the kind words but all I did was buy the thing

Eric- I'm hoping to buy the fork when the loan ends so I can stash it for future use haha!

Kfreytag- I think almost every cx fork has an axle to crown between 395 and 400mm so I don't think the difference would be more than a couple mm. They're likely exactly the same.
