I recommend this product
ConsAlignments-mediocre
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

I recommend this product
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

ConsNot,fit,for,purpose
ProsNon
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

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.

Would They Suit 1994 Dawes Horizon Twin?
By

Its was originally purchased from yourselves and still going strong. But I need more mudguard clearance
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

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.

Thanks.

Will Regular Road Brakes Fit?
By
25 Jun 2014
I have the shimano R450 brakes. Can they be used with this fork with a 700c wheel?
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

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

Thanks.
What Is The Maximum Tire Size This Fork Will Accept?
By
