But it vanished.

Time to build up a cruiser BMX with the 24" Junit I think. A pump track ruler.


Only holdup is you need a tapered head tube for the Junit forks.

Or some of your vaunted NOS parts hacking.


I guess the question is not where I can, but whether I should. :sneaky:

The Junit forks are built on Machete Boost chassis and to date Manitou haven't made a crown for those that will take a 1.125" straight steerer. Yes they could be modified but it's a time/money/liability thing.
If they were non-boost (10mm narrower crown) then I've got dozens of those crowns right here.

Because a 24" fork needs all the extra boost stiffness.
Oh, well.

Because all new forks are boost. The extra width means you can fit the bolt-on mudguards and means you can fit fatter tyres past the brake caliper.
