Tyre Size Maxm ?

Will a 28c tyre fit with adequate full mudguard clearance
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

You'd be absolutely fine using 28mm tyres with mudguards and still have plenty of clearance.

Thanks.
Brake Drop

Can you please confirm if these forks require a 57mm drop brake?

Thanks.
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

We normally fit brakes with 47-57mm drop, but depending on the rim it is closer to the 57mm mark so if you have a set of brakes that cover 57mm, they should fit fine.

Thanks.

Hi there. Can you tell me what the uncut steerer length on these forks is please?

SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

The un-cut length of the steerer on these forks is 380mm.

Thanks.
700C Thorn 853C Steel Fork Star Nut
By
02 Jan 2016
This fork is stated to have a 1 1/8 steerer. However, I have tried to fit a 1 1/8 star nut but it does not fit (falls to the bottom of the tube). I have fitted a compression plug which seems to work but should I have fitted a 1 1/4 star nut?

I have a 1 1/4 star nut so not a problem if this is the better option.

Thanks
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

The inside of the steerer tube is ever so slightly oversized, meaning that some 1 1/8" star nuts struggle to grip properly. We normally have to press out certain 1 1/8" star nuts to allow them to grip fully, if you do not wish to do this then we would recommend using an expanding wedge style compression plug as a 1 1/4" star nut is still too large to actually fit. This slightly oversize internal diameter does not affect the strength of the forks in any way.

Thanks.

I'm trying to decide between some carbon forks or some good old fashioned steel forks for a Ti frame I have just purchased and would like to know how much these forks weigh.

this fork weighs 895grams.

Thanks.
