Unbent Fork Leg

Unbent Fork Leg, originally uploaded by Xvelo Designs.

Working on the template for the fork leg to the inaugural bike. I’m debating the 25mm off-set versus the 50-60mm off-set of the old Randonee bikes. I’m shooting for a little faster handling than an old bike but not as fast as my road bike. It’s going on a 74 degree head tube. I think I’ll shoot for the 40-50mm and hang the fork in the garage if I dislike the handling. If any real builders read this, you’re opinion is so very encouraged.
The bending will be tomorrow along with the brazing of the head tube to the steer tube. God speed and cheers, you’ll here more later.
