Replacement fork for an old bike
By tiago

I recommend this product
Consheavy, uncouth finishing
Prosclearance, steerer length, price
Doesn't ride as nice as a spare Surly, nor as a original Koga it was replacing, but for the price, and sonce this is for my beater bike, it is suitable.
No machining needed to fit the headset race. Really wide fork with more clearance than needed for 35mm and mudguards.
Spot on!

ProsFinish, quality
Bought these as a replacement for the original suntour cr8v forks - had a real problem finding a suitable replacement until I found SJS - simple replacement and perfect fit - had to cut stem down slightly, which was easier than expected (plenty of thread). Black finish blends in with frame very well.
All in all - very happy, will come back to SJS first on this experience. Biggest plus is the improvement in ride - bike is now significantly more precise than it was even with the old suspension forks locked out.
Well finished product

ProsCheap, stiff, carrier-tapped
Second one of these I've fitted. Like the first, the alignments weren't great but everything generally fitted together OK including no filing need to fit the lower bearing this time. Nice and stiff after Reynolds 531ST types (broke two of those easily)
Hard To Find Threaded Touring Fork

I recommend this product
I had quite a hard time finding a threaed toruing fork (with bosses for low rider racks and 2 sets of eyelets). This was the winner! Had it installed this week. I'm happy with it and I'm thankful that SJS stocks this item. I really didn't want to convert to threadless.
Seems Good

ConsThe area for the crown racer needs to be filed down
ProsLots of lugs, should take any pannier rack
Not yet installed it on the touring bike how ever the initial thoughts are good. The forks seem to be up to the job, a lot of thread for the steerer so you can cut it to your own length.
Poor Quality - Returned
By Stephen

Bought one of these to replace fatigued forks on a Dawes Discovery in 2008. Very poor quality of manufacture meant the end plates where not parallel and the QR skewer would not fit. Returned as not fit for purpose and money was refunded. To advertise these as suitable for a Dawes Galaxy is entirely inappropriate.
Steerer Tube Cracked
By Mark

3 / 5
Steerer Tube cracked and split down the rear washer-notch on install. Was using a quill-style convertor for use with threadless stems so it is possible that the orientation of the quill was at fault. Nonetheless I have never seen nor heard of this before so I would never recommend this.

Could I use this fork with calliper brakes?
21 Jan 2021
You might be able to, but depending on the brakes in question you might find that these interfere with the v brake mounts.

you need approx a 75mm side-pull brake to suit.

Trek 520 touring bike (green old 1990s)
13 Aug 2020
Hi Guys, I’m wanting to replace the fork on my Trek 520 so I can get a wider tyre. Currently can only fit a 40mm (45 at a real stretch).

Hi there,

We do not have any information provided to tell whether this would fit you bicycle; Width inside blades 70mm at tyre, so 700x55 tyres max.

Thanks - 13/08/20
Would the fork be able to fit a Tubus Lowrider?
31 Jul 2020
Wonderful that you still have so many parts for vintage bikes in stock!
I'm planning on upgrading the fork on my old Centurion tourer with a fork like this, to hopefully be able to mount a Tubus Lowrider.
Is this possible?
Regards from Denmark
It does have eyelets in the right places, so yes, but we have never fitted one to know of any unforeseen problems.

What is the Offset
23 May 2020

What is the offset/rake on these forks?
Unfortunately this information is not providing by the manufacturer or supplier.

Minimum Head tube lenth?
16 Dec 2018
Will these forks be okay with 105 mm head tube? And will the Tange headsets you sell be compatible with these forks?
It is likely, but you would need to know the stack of the headset etc or measure the steerer tube of the current fork.

Thanks - 17/12/18
Can I use this with a 25 year old steel Dawes Meanstreet hybrid
07 Sep 2018
The bike has a unicrown fork, a quill headset and cantilever brakes, 700c wheels and the framesize is about 20
Hi yes these forks should fit. Thanks
My previous question re headset
06 Aug 2018
The frame is a Claude Butler Regent with 1" threaded steerer fork. The problem is not so much matching the frame, but, as pointed out by two reviewers, that some headsets do not fit this fork without filing or machining the seating on the fork.
Hi there,

As long as the dimensions given in the description are matched there should not be a problem, there are two types of 1" headset crown races and its possible the wrong size was used.

What headset would you recommend?
03 Aug 2018
Need to ensure that the lower bearing fits this 1 " steerer fork without filing
The headset choice is quite dependant on the fitting of the frame, so we would need to know that to advise.

Axle Width?
07 Nov 2016
Hi again, What is axle width of forks please?


These forks are designed for hubs that are 100mm wide.

Would They Suit 1994 Dawes Horizon Twin?
05 Aug 2015
Its was originally purchased from yourselves and still going strong. But I need more mudguard clearance

Unfortunately these forks are only cheap replacements and are not rated for tandem use so we would not recommend fitting them to a tandem I'm afraid.

24 Apr 2015
What is the material ?
Is it cromo ?

These are standard cromo steel.

Will Regular Road Brakes Fit?
25 Jun 2014
I have the shimano R450 brakes. Can they be used with this fork with a 700c wheel?

Unfortunately not, these forks only have fittings for v-brakes or cantilever brakes and can't accept normal road calliper brakes.

What Is The Maximum Tire Size This Fork Will Accept?
24 Apr 2014

I would not recommend using a tyre any wider than 2".

Does the steerer on this, have a notch at the rear running down the thread? Thanks

Yes there is a notch running down through the threads at the rear of the steerer tube.
