Fixin' to take a crack at a segmented fork. It's for a heavier rider (230 pounds). Using 7/8" .049 straight gauge (heavy rider, heavy fork, right?). I'm wondering if it doesn't make sense to drill a 7/8" hole through the steerer (1.125") and fillet braze a single cross-member through it. Yeah, I know, I've heard the warnings about punching holes in steerer tubes.
At the same time, it's .049" wall tubing. Pretty heavy shit. And it's not like I'm not adding more material back, right?
On the other hand, I'd prefer not to kill the user of the bike, either.
I come to you, VS, for thoughts and advice.
