    Wren forks cheap?

    Saw this Wren fatbike fork on Amazon for super cheap and I'm trying to figure out if this is the old (non-keyed stanchion) models, or what they are?

    Looks to be a 2014 version, based on the adjustment knobs in the pic and user pic. The model number is missing the "K" that the keyed version has. Still it's a great price for a Wren, but not the Keyed Twin Air version.

    Non keyed stanchions and solo air looking at the pic.

    Is the older version still better than a Bluto? Looking for an inexpensive fork for my wife's bike?

    Never link to amazon if you want the price to stay cheap. Prices fluctuate with the amount of hits it gets.

    I didn't want to be a dick and keep it a secret, but I guess I screwed myself.
    Thanks for the answers.

    Wow, at 341 that's a steal. Late to the party am I, wah wah.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Keep an eye out regularly on Amazon for the Wren fork if you want the non keyed version. I have it saved and watch the price go up and down quite a bit from about $400 to I think around $800. If you catch it right, it can be pretty cheap.

    Is this older non keyed version superior to a Bluto? Trying to determine if I should put it on my Bucksaw or my wife's Farley?

    If you use camelcamelcamel.com you can set up price alerts and track prices. It's a handy tool.

    STOP clicking on the link. It's up to $700 now and there are still "only 4 available".
