If you don't mind me asking, how long did it take to sand the fork down? I'm about to start a similar project and am just trying to get a feel for what I'm looking at. Thanks!

It took at a guess about 3 hours, I knocked the top coats off very carefully with a sharp Stanley knife blade and then used 600-800-1200 grit, wet sanding.

Don’t use anything rougher or you’ll take twice as long getting the scratches out (I tried 400 grit ..)

What a disaster.

My fork (super six) was advertised as 1&1/8” - 1&1/4” in the eBay listing.

It’s not - it’s 1&1/8” - 1&1/2” and this does not fit.

I did not think to check this before stripping the paint.

Does anyone need a super six fork with uncut 295mm steerer?

Thanks

Unfortunately the project is stalled until I sort out a new fork. If anyone needs the Super Six fork I have PM me..

The problem I have being my height and with the 63cm frame I ride is that I need a lot of steerer tube. Even without any extra spacers I need (220 + 15.6 + 40mm) aroun 280mm of steerer tube, making it hard to find forks secondhand.

I am likely going to replace the fork with a 3T Rigida Pro - there are lots of NOS ones from Focus Izalco Team's on German Ebay with uncut steerers. 395g painted ..

Have got the headset and the Ti bolts for the deraileur hanger and seatpost now. Also a carbon top cap and FSA carbon 13mm tapered spacer.

My fork has sold so I should be able to get the new 3T Rigida fork within the next few weeks.

I’ve changed my aero bike over to an integrated bar and stem this freeing up my carbon FSA SL-K cockpit for this build, however I may change the stem for a 130mm as the top tube is a little shorter than my Propel.

I will also need to run a slamthatstem top cap to copy the fit of my Propel.

Here’s where the parts pile is at thus far :

I’m keeping an eye out for Dura Ace 9000 parts to mix and match with the Ultegra 6800 I already have as well. I’ve always wanted to try longer cranks.

Can I ask what year the fork is? Is it the new style straight one?

With the super six fork sold I could finally order the 3T Rigida Pro

It’s NOS from a Focus Izalco Team. 395g uncut. It will get the paint removed and a clear coat.
