When the beaches on the creek haven't had foot traffic they are hard packed enough to get rad. There are usually natural berms, banks and step downs. I need to make some tougher forks because there was a 15 foot gap step down and I couldn't trust the light weight supertherm fork that I built. They are more than strong for normal riding but the possibility of hitting a soft spot of sand after a big gap attempt had me a bit cautious... Anyway, a good excuse to make a fatbike dirtjump fork.
 This is the first fork that I've made with offset legs (I would usually just adjust the dropout offset on jumper forks). They are 1.5* offset from the steerer and have clearance for a bigger tire than the last fork.
