    Mono stays resist the twisting and flexing forces imparted by cantilever brakes better than regular seatstays.

    It's a 1" headtube, don't remember the length. (But I think it's shorter then what Kirk remembers and listed above.)

    The fork is a 1" Pace RC31, 420mm axle to crown. Probably the last 1" Pace made as I got it just as DT Swiss was buying them out back in 2007.

    Kirk,

    If it is so efficient, why don't more people use them. On-One is the only one that comes to mind.

    And Dekerf, Sycip, Mountain Goat, Schwinn, Rock Lobster, Moots and many carbon manufacturers (and many others I'm forgetting.)

    Thanks jw. I'm looking for a fork for my privateer comp, quadra 21r finally toast and just not worth reviving. I'd like to go rigid anyway. I'll add this to the short list of forks to keep an eye out for.

    We had a baby blue, white and orange Bontrager come through the shop this last summer. It was all original and in great shape. He rides it a lot and takes care of it. I asked the guy if he would sell it and there was no way! Those things are just too perfect to let go.

    Consider a Waltworks custom steel fork also, I've got two of them and they are hard to beat for smooth cush. Probably not much difference in price, just a longer wait, and the ride/fit will be tailored to you, your bike, and your riding style. Makes a great frame even greater IMO.

    This thread brings back great memories I bought a Bontrager OR in 1994 and rode that bike until 2002 when I sadly ripped the derailleur hanger off. It was purple with white and silver decals.
    Guess what? I got a fever, and the only prescription is more Singlespeed!!!

    I'm constantly on the lookout for a Bontrager RaceLite to replace the one I foolishly sold many moons ago. I've thought about having a replica made because like Kirk, the original geo was a little short in the top tube for me.

    Ultimately I decided to go with a Sycip as I've wanted one of those for a long time. And while a Neo-trager would be cool, it still wouldn't be a Bontrager.
