    Thanks for the feedback guys

    The dropouts are 4mm thick with the speaker cut-out in em

    We are hoping for a March/ April release. It depends how good or bad the testing goes

    Actually, I had them drilled for the brake (I photoshopped it out) but it’s ridiculous since the rim is so far away from the bottom of the steerer. Unless you rig up your brake with extremely long arms, brakes just won’t be working on this fork

    It would be totally AMAZING if you would make a few up with a 1″ steerer so I could fancy up my fuji that way when I order a cutter they will have matching forks. Plus tons of cats out there looking for a solid 1″ option that isn’t 200 bucks

    drilling brake holes would be an unnecessary step in the process. i mean for crying out loud, what would be next, gyros for fixed gears? the nature of the bike itself is that it’s ridden BRAKELESS. I feel like i speak for a number of people when i say PLEASE NO BRAKE HOLES. Either way, the fork looks hot and i’m buying it on day one.

  • Ryan C,

    Haha gotta love the name “Bundchen”, I’d spin all day with the original… the holes should be there just like you pointed out BOSS
    “Too bad for you, the Bundchen I know has a hole.”

    Great work guys! 1″ I would buy for sure! I’ll see if I can get a large enough group on the TT Forum

    The angles of the Cutter with the standard fork are 74°, it the new fork put them at 73° is Ok but if they’re going to be around 71° i think that they’re too relaxed.
    My bike as 73° and 73.5°, can’t barspin with a 700c front and I love the handling with a 650c wheel.
    Just my 2 cents

    I don’t foresee us doing a 1″ version but you never know. If enough of you guys ask for it than we’ll make it.

    Yes, I agree that the geometry is off once you lengthen the fork legs as much as they are. Any aftermarket fork that will allow you to throw the bars will do this. We’ll have to see how things go. I’d really hate to change the overall geometry of the frame right now. Since we aren’t going to have the fork with the frame anymore, we can’t change the frame geometry to compensate.

    The bars are our new 13 butted VBC fixed bar. We originally had them on our first edition 26″ Sledgehammer but they were too small. Once we put them on a fixed, it was a perfect fit. Plus our goal is to make these things into 700C Fixed BMX bikes. We’ll have more details on them soon.

    I agree. It’s either fixed or nothing. I can see that if you’re going through a lot of traffic you’d need a brake though.

    After an overwhelming amount of emails we got from your guys, it looks like we’ll do a small batch of 1″ also. Thanks again for the feedback guys

    pdxbmx: The 700C tire probably looks small because of the large gap from steerer to the top of the tire. The only way we can get away with a fork that barspins on most sizes is to have larger legs.

    I just checked the overall geometry of the frame with the new fork and these are the measurements:
    Head tube: was: 74 now 73
    Seat tube: was 74 now 73
