Are you interested to learn more about the technical background?
Do you offer stanchion guards?
Are you crazy?
No, my experience with that not covered lowers is: no problems at all. If you take "normal" care about your fork, there will not be more scratches on the lowers than on the uppers of a normal fork (there are no guards either and nobody gives a shit). If you are scared, there is a way: don't buy it ;)
Can I test the fork anywhere ?
No, unfortunately I'm to small too give the possibility to every customer to test a fork. I have 2 test forks which are always on the bikes of magazines like Cycleholix, Bike, Mountainbike, Pinkbike and so on. They should do the job of testing the fork and give you a neutral opinion if the fork works or not. Find out more at Press reports. In my opinion you can trust these magazines. They do not have a reason to give positive feedback to a bad fork.
Do you offer other colors?
Yes. Black and blue are the standard colors which I prefer to sell. If you really want to have a special anodizing, I can do this for 250 euro additional due to additional costs for small quantity anodizing and the handling effort. The color can't be matched to some certain parts. I can't guarantee the resulting color for other colors, that's why I try to avoid doing special colors
Note: Laseretching is done BEFORE Anodizing in case of special color. I have the laseretched raw tubes in stock and will anodize it in your color afterwards. That is why the laseretching will not be "white", but it will be a little bit dark, See the picture of the red fork in the pics.
Is special laser etching possible?
Unfortunatey this is not possible, the risk of any failure of the lasering is too high, the last step of the whole process can destroy all manufacturing. The overall handling effort is too high.
Lets start together in a New Age !
New Age - this describes a complete update of a whole bunch of details on the Intend Edge fork. Cable guide ? New. Bushings ? New. Axles ? New.
In the last 2 years I worked on a lot of details to improve the technique of the fork and get closer to perfection.
And this comes together in what I call "New Age". Find out all details what New Age means:
New Age (scroll down)
This fork is made in Germany to 98%, in small numbers. Assembled piece by piece in Freiburg - all by hand.
The following is for both versions, 27,5" and 29":
(Both (20 and 15) have the same dropouts. You can change this up to 20mm also after purchase by removing the 20to15 adapter and a 20mm axle (sold seperatly). Please be informed, that the stiffness of the system is higher with the 20mm axle. I do not have figures to show hoch much stiffer the 20mm axle is. I recommend 20mm version for anybody, but 15mm of course also works.
Note: All dropouts will be black, independent of the blue, black or raw color.
