Lynskey OEMs a fork. This is news?

I was really hoping to see a true axle disc fork.

$58 more and you get an Enve 2.0.

I am curious as to who is making these? And who designed them? Are they designed by Lynskey, or did they just purchase a carbon fork from an open mold?

I dunno. I love the idea of craft Honed carbon, but someday SE Asians will do it just as well. (And have been) Lynksey has a b*tch of an accountant but how else can you survive?

Just another example of cheep Chinese crap coming from lynskey. Looks like they ripped of Winwood and Easton. Don’t expect any innovation from these guys just imitation and replication.

They didn’t “rip off” anyone. They went to China and got forks made, like hundreds of companies before. Nothing shocking about that. Hardly news, but hardly anything to get upset over.
