    Where can I find a 26" aluminum fork????

    I have an old Novara Aspen mountain bike, the bike is all steel. Would like to find an aluminum fork to lower the weight.

    The catch: 1" steerer tube.

    Cant find one anywhere, any help?

    I emailed them, and got a reply back 45 minutes later: 708 grams.

    They're for recumbents and may not have the proper offset.

    No luck on ebay??
    These days there are some nice carbon forks on there as well (take-offs from high-end bikes that went to a front shock, etc).
