Fox 32 Float RL 140mm Suspension Forks (1.5" steerer only) £179.99 @ Chain Reaction Cycles - RRP £719.99

Found 18th Dec 2010
Silly cheap price for a great set of forks, the downside is it won't fit many bikes. You will need a 1.5" headtube (think Coke can size) which isn't very common. I'm guessing the axle is 9mm QR going by the photo but might be worth checking.

No silly comments about "who is this brand i've never heard of?, must be cheap rubbish!". Well maybe one comment

Our Float® trail fork, famous for its lightweight and incredible damping performance, goes under for a nip and tuck. A new crown, taper steerer, and lower leg combine to shed weight and increase stiffness. Damping is again refined for seamless transitions for traction and cornering, and our 15QR thru-axle system (140mm Black version only) option offers incredible stiffness and steering precision. At 140/130mm, FLOAT is THE choice for your lightweight trail bike needs: light, tough, and looking good.

Very good find shame they will not fit my frame, heat added

Not sure if they will fit mine... Will have to check tomorrow. Heat added.

almost no one has that size headset, hence the price (most bikes are 1.25 or 1.5>1.25 tapered) and its fox's most basic fork. it is a good price though, it's only really worth about £300-£350.

Yer I totally agree Smiff, all new long travel bikes are tapered steerer pretty much. But for those few people with a suitable bike it's a good buy.

of course i meant 1.125, not 1.25 . its 1-1/8" normally.
anyone buying these?
