    Looks great! Much better looking than Sandman's!
    Sorry for a stupid question. What fork is that and how much travel?

    Looks like a white Bros dual crown something fork with large marge rims and a Nate.

    Whats the clearance on the upper legs?

    I have a feeling that is a really spendy fork.

    Anyone have links to the tech specs for this fork? Compatible hubs, max rim width etc... I have to claim ignorance to suspension fork hubs etc.

    Technical specs, not maintenance specs. There's nothing about how wide the fork legs are or any other dimensions....

    20mm throguh axel hubs have 110mm axel spacing and the inside of the forks lower tubes look to be at same 110mm width as the axel flange. Tire clearance at the upper portion of the fork tubes are a bit narrower due to thickness of the overlapping upper tube, probably right around 100mm clearance for the tire.

    These forks weigh around 8 pounds!

    These forks have already been discussed in several posts here. Do a search for "White Brothers Groove" and some of them should come up.

    A 3.8" Nate on a 70mm rim fits in there - just. A 4.8" tire on a semi-wide rim doesn't fit. But it's hardly a fork for a trail bike unless you want to huck yours from a 30ft cliff... I test rode it on a Sandman Outback tandem and it's already heavy on such a dual monster rig.
