This Space for Rent

Waste not, want not (magpie edition)

Fork selfie

I painted an old 1" fork (originally threaded, but with a really long steertube, so I cut it down and used it as a threadless fork on the born-again Trek until I bought a used carbon fork from a friend) that I messed up the paint by brazing rack mounts & then using it as a rackbuilding jig. I’m not going to be using it as a jig soon (I bought 10 feet of 8020 extrusion which is going to be built into a sturdier – and more flexible – rack jig) so why not pretty it up in case I need it as a fork on one of of my machines that has a 1" headtube?
