BMW Clusterfork Oct 6, 2009

Brooklyn Machine Works have been very busy over on Powers street in Williamsburg. They’ve been hashing out a new 700c trick fork and finally, the first batch is heading out to the painters. With so many forks on the market currently, it’s nice to see some unique details. I dig the ‘B’ logo cutout on the fork ends and the taper of the blades. Overall, it’s a really nice fork.

They also display the clearance the only way you should, with calipers. None of this “it’ll clear some obscure tire”.

Expect a nicely proportioned fork that will clear almost any frame and tire combo with a 410mm ass to cunt clearance. Not too heavy either, weighing in at 1360grams. Price? $175, handmade in the USA.

Lookin good guys!

    Oh, hotness. Where are the MKE Bruiser forks made? They come in clors but this BMW looks legit. Can you get them in raw? I don’t want black.

    I’d call them dropouts. That’s just me.

  • Drop outs are the rear, called ‘track ends’ on track bikes and ‘fork ends’ are on the fork. At least that’s what I’ve always heard them called by frame builders.
