Ritchey WCS MTB Fork Black

$300 GPB
Hi all, Up for sale here are my Ritchie Carbon WCS forks. These things are just amazing. So light it's beyond believe, strong as hell, with the forgiving feel of carbon. They're in mint condition.I had them fitted up to my Kona unit - pictured here - and along with the haven wheels, they made a fairly standard steel frame incredibly light. Unfortunately, after a couple of spills on my DH bike I'm not using them for the near future. So grab a bargain - I paid 390 for these 4 months ago. Asking £300 with shipping. Any questions, just shout. Cheers! Oficial discription: Ritchey Forks Our carbon fork line provides comfort, precision steering and reliable performance across many cycling disciplines. Our unidirectional fiber (UD) WCS and PRO road forks not only weigh-in under the 300 gram benchmark (WCS), but are also stronger by virtue of their advanced grade carbon, monocoque construction. The newly added Comp model is a bargain for the performance and price. All models offered in 43mm & 45mm rakes to fine tune your frames geometry for that precision steering we promised. Ritchey WCS MTB Fork (29in) Features: Matte UD Carbon Finish Full Carbon Construction Full Carbon Dropouts & Disc Brake Tab Suspension corrected axle-crown height based on 100mm suspension fork POST mount disc brake 50mm Crown diameter Axle-crown: 445mm Rake: 38mm 605g Available in: - Fit: For use with Mountain Bikes with a 1-1/8" steerer diameter size. - Colours: Black UD Carbon finish. - Technology: WCS WCS (WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES) - These words evoke the core philosophy behind Ritcheys highest performance components. The rainbow stripe WCS logo represents the numerous world champions that have won on Ritchey. The WCS line is the gold standard for lightweight, bombproof race parts and cutting edge innovation. As with all Ritcheys products thier WCS line provides the best performance with the best strength. These forks are no exception the high modulus fiber (HMF) carbon construction providing amazing strength, and only weighing in at 470g means they are possibly the lightest cyclocross fork on the market!

BTR Fabrications: Push For The Pinner
Hey Tambo, all makes perfect sense to me - as someone who tigs custom motorbike exhuasts in my spare I understand the cost of Argon... Totally get the materials cost too. But unfortunately the average punter doesn't care about that - they just look at surface price and don't want to get deeply involved in the ethical / economical reasons behind the price. Seems like a doomed mission for your love not money and that's not going to get to many backers hot and loose in the wallet department. But you're not going for the average punter eh. Sure you know all of this anyway and I'm teaching you to suck eggs. Good luck with it all!!

Funding aside (which I'd like to get involved in but feel a little confused about what use I'd be contributing and the gap between a tenner for a shirt and 2.5 grand for a frame) how much do you expect the frame to be if released? I'm guessing as it's made in the UK this is a good thing as there are no import duties etc and as it's a simple steel frame the price would reflect this? If it's 2.5k for a frame alone though I just can't see it competing with a lot of other frames out there in that price bracket. The DMR bolt is a mere 800 for instance... But perhaps that's your plan, as you're making in small batches - sell to the odd chap who wants to look very different from the masses and doesn't mind paying to do so?
