I held a ruler up against them yesterday and they were about 22-23cm, I'll measure properly tonight and let you know
^ this didnt work out well for joe. weird headset spacers, filing forks and cutting of safety tabs was involved.
Joe's forks had a built-in crownrace, which Pomp forks don't.
No safety tabs on v-brakes/cantis either...
thanks guys, where shall I pick the forks up from Andy?
i think i mismeasured from the bottom buffer to the top of the bar holder is 21cm
Forgot to get back to you over the weekend. I can probably drop them off at polo tomorrow if it happening... or I'm in town if you're local.
Rob I'll have some polo forks available for sale soon, so just get a cheap steel frame like a plug or if you wanna spend a bit more get a Dolan pre cursa for 99 quid
He's already got the new bike, but it has a long headtube.
actually they aren't that long I only need the 22/3 Cm for the whole thing not just for the headtube. I live in whitworth park so anywhere in central Manchester wouldn't be a problem to pick up
Took the fork off the bike today and measured it properly, turns out the steerer is 215mm.
If you still want it I can bring it to work (Oxford Rd) or probably polo one evening.
Normal headsets are about 32mm tall, some low alloy headset go down to 28mm, budget steel headsets can go down to 23mm but I can't recommend one yet.
just measure properly and then you know.
chances are i won't be at polo tonight but if you're on Oxford Road tomorrow i can pick it up from you
Hey rob I will bring those cranks tonight am give them to other rob so when you go boathouse he can put them on
Could you bring that seatpost too please?
thanks guys, when will you be at boathouse rob?
I'll be there tomorrow.
people and mabye me will be poloing a bit tomorrow as well.
Omg, you're not a person???
Got those forks today but been a bit busy today and most of the rest of the afternoon. Can run the forks down to Platt Fields tomorrow if you're putting the bike together there?
I also have a bunch of Magic cold-weather balls that I can drop off with Rob too
if Rob is willing to do it tomorrow that would be fine
I text Rob, he's going to be there from "10" until 6 and has some cranks for you. I'll run the forks down at 11ish and drop them off with whoever :)
Get that 20tooth freewheel off @emyr
Dropped forks off with Rob at the boathouse.
They are on, wheels need a bit of attention.
cranks go on ok?
everything is on and works well, I'm excited for thursday now! Thanks for helping out evveryone
