Those of you who how read my Renovo wooden bike topic, will know that I am still struggling on finding the right fork to match the frame. I am currently using an Easton EC90 fork, as you can see in the pictures below.
I already had an English Cycles fork built for the frame, but it looked horrible. Whilst searching the web for better options, I came across a couple of Columbus MAX forks that might look nice with the frame, as Columbus MAX fork blades are the widest tapered steel fork blades readily available. I contacted Eric Estlund from Winter Cycles and he would be able to do a Columbus MAX fork for this built.
However, to prevent having a fork built that won't look good on the frame again, I would like to ask if there is anyone here with the skills to draw me a new fork in photoshop?
Here is the best picture I have of the bike:
In the meantime I did change the stem to a polished one and I also had to replace the rims, which are now H Plus Son Polished rims. Unfortunately I do not have a good side view picture of the bike in the new configuration. The best picture I have is this one (Fizik Arione is just temporary):
Eric gave me a couple of different options for the MAX fork, but for the time being the most important thing is whether MAX shaped fork blades will look nice with the frame and whether I need to go with straight or slightly bent blades
. The outer diameter of the CK headset is about 45mm. The top of the MAX fork blades is 36mm.
Here are a couple of examples of Columbus MAX forks. in advance
