    what kid of fork is this?

    I think it says Dauf Setter on the fork, hard to tell. Is it the stock GT fork or some after market thingy? Any idea? Thanks!! what kid of fork is this?-fork-1-.jpgwhat kid of fork is this?-fork-2-.jpgwhat kid of fork is this?-fork-3-.jpg

    This is a seriously munched decal on the fork. It looks like it says "Pacesetter".

    I don't think it is OEM either. Looking out into the googleverse I only see Pacesetter as a brand showing up on a vintage Canadian road bike and some low-price-entry-level mountain bikes in Australia.

    Physically it reminds me of a knock off of the answer accutrax fork.

    That generation of GTs had adjustable dropouts on the fork.

    Not on a Karakoram. Would have come with a colour matched Bologna Lite. They put the 3D and 2x4 forks on the higher end bikes like the Avalanche, Psyclone, and Xizang.

    I don't know what it is, could be just about anything, from a stock fork, from another brand to an aftermarket fork. It definitely is not the stock GT fork and I don't think it's a Answer Accutrax fork either

    On what basis? I have never seen those dropouts on anything other than Accutrax. Shape of blades where they enter the steerer say later Accutrax. The shape of the blades where they meet the dropout Accutrax. The sticker is the only thing that isn't Accutrax and I expect it was added after the fact.

    Hey bushpig, after eyeing your photos, I do agree with you. I must of been thinking of another fork, Yeti maybe? Which I used back in the day.

    Yea, the earlier forks had a sharper angle at the crown and the later ones was a more circular shape like this one.

    Don't think so, well we all can agree that, it's a fork. Thanks for the input. I may have to hoard it for a time, love those straight mtb forks. Mine does angle forward some from the fork crown, little different perhaps?
