    Default Low-Trail Fork Blade Raking Service

    All,

    I've been providing high-rake fork blades for low-trail randonneur/audax frames to one well known builder for several years, and periodically get requests for them from individuals who are commissioning custom frames or forks by other builders. As a result I am now offering this service to all frame builders as well as individuals who wish to have their builder utilize them.

    If you want a fork with a beautiful, low and tight blade curvature right up to the drop-outs, I can make it happen on new Continental Oval, Imperial Oval and track blades for $20/pair + return shipping.

    Please email me off-list if interested: jmedclay@yahoo.com.

    Beautiful forks John! Have you used the Kaisei Toei Special blades? Opinions on them?

    Your fork or frame builder should be able to fabricate or source a suitable left blade reinforcing/attaching arm for the caliper. There is nothing about the curve that would prohibit doing that.

    I've raked more of those than any other single type of blade. People seem to like them but I'm on Continental Oval blades because I had a bunch. They make for a very attractive fork though.

    Thank you both for the kind words!
