Looking for a fork with 53mm of rake around 368mm long, but can't seem to find anything available. I've found some with a 1-1/8 steerer but none tapered. Surely somebody makes something of this description?

I wish! No for my Selene, I started riding a size 56 roadie with 'proper' trail (~59mm) and track bikes with super short trail. In short the 68mm of trail on the Selene feels a little slow now... Great for long rides but I feel the longish reach and lowish stack make more sense for a crit bike.
