    Noleen Fork Steering Tube

    To some of you who have bought the Noleen fork, how long was your steering tube. Its advertised as 8 1/4 inches, which would be borderline at best for my bike. I think Duckman said that his came a little longer than that. I am considering one for my XL Epic. Thanks.

    I have one that appears to be uncut (there's a nice bevel on the inside) at 8 3/8" long.

    Edited with mo beta

    I've heard anywhere from 8.6 to 8.3". I've cut both mine already, and sorta forget. Its all those 1970s drugs man...I think. Sounds good anyways. Surely they'd fit. I cut one to fit my size L NRS frame even. Don't hold me to that tho.

    ---Edited-the site says 210mm. I "think" DeeEight says 215mm. I used Pedros syn lube w/ injector deal, and that, along with some breakin action, and the forks lost most or all of the stiction it had when new. The syn lube got rid of that black factory crap the fork comes with too, FWIW. I've ridden the pi@s outta the fork on the blue ride, and its just gotten better so far.

    Watch it explode next ride. LOL!

    I just got my Noleen & it was right at 8.5" -- I actually sent an email to ediscount, and they went and measured one for me ;-)
