Max 700cc tire size?
09 Jan 2018
What is the maximum 700cc tire size that can be used in this fork, both with and without fenders? I'm interested in Running 38 mm or even a bit wider, but have noticed that the Axel to Crown distance is less than your other Club Tour fork.

This fork has clearance for 2.15” tyres.- This relates to 54mm or so, so yes you should have no problem with mudguards and a 38/42mm tyre, maybe even bigger depending on the tyre/guard and how much clearance you want to have.

Steel fork rake sizes 46 and 52

You have an interesting front fork, Thorn RAV853VC Steel Fork - Black with rake sizes 46 and 52. My bike is a mtb of the brand Bianchi Martini Racing. The size of my bike is 49. Which of the two rake sizes suits my bike?
Hans Hultman

Unfortunately we have no way of knowing which will best suit your frame. We offer these in two options specifically to suit different sizes of our own Thorn frames so we don't know which would be best for your frame.
