Long travel, single speed, 650b is almost there.
 Room for 650b 2.4" DH tires at about 16.1". Most of the other hardtail 650 frames I have seen have ~16.5" CS.

Some chrome and black stickers will give this fork some contrast with the oxidized designs. This shot makes the color look kinda orange but it more on the bergundy side

 The Supertherm legs are pretty elastic and would take a head-on impact pretty well. The steer tube would be a little more susceptible so I put an aluminum insert in there. I ordered some butted steer tubes to use on this type of fork in the future.

.25" thick, 14mm axle dropouts

 395mm, the same length ATC as this lightweight fork on the left but with much more tire clearance. I might try a 385mm fork if I ever have to make another of these five piece forks for a 26 DJ bike.

I wish they made chapstick for eyeballs.  Long day in the Austin sun.
