Brainfart of the year!

So I was building a fat fork, with some offset, for Jared, and I managed to do the offset wrong - instead of the centerline of the axle being offset 17.5mm, I offset so that the driveside is 17.5mm further from the center than the nondrive side (so I offset 8.75mm, awesome).

Needless to say, I have to build Jared a new fork. Which leaves me with a bit of a conundrum about what to do with this one, beyond just accepting the cruel taunting of my loyal readers.

So: want a great deal on a fatfork that will require some re-dishing of your wheel (or a wheel built for that offset)? Awesome, you have two options:
Option 1: Buy the fork from me for $150.
Option 2: Get the fork for free when you order a frame.

Here are the dimensions:
-135x10 spacing/dropouts
-447mm axle to crown
-38mm rake
-Around 130mm tire clearance (so anything will fit)
-Safe for anyone up to 225#
-Tapered blades, disc specific, some nice rack mounts if you want to run racks or fenders
-Black black black.

Interested? Drop me a line. I'll post a photo tomorrow.
