The fork crown represents the first change to my flat crown shape since 1982. I widened the centerlines by 8mm and increased the pocket height by 6mm. The brake holes are pre-drilled and counter-bored, while a built-in lip exists to keep the steerer in place. Newly added contours on the crown’s shelf will help better position the headset race. Each pocket has a precision cast well built in to receive decorative reinforcements—brazed in simultaneously with the fork blade—which will be supplied. Because the crown is hollow, these additions & revisions will not affect the overall weight.
