We ran into James, 3T’s head of sales, walking around NAHBS. As luck would have it, he had a pre-production version of their forthcoming Luteus disc brake cyclocross fork stuffed into his pack. Here are some of the first hands-on photos of the fork anywhere!
The original posts and technical discussions on the fork are here, here and here. We’re guessing the holes for the hose ties will be a bit more polished and smooth by the time this fork reaches full production, and paint will fill in some of the coarse edges, too.
Jump past the break for lots more…
Two hose tie tunnels will help keep the brake hose in line, and we’re guessing the OCD types might use a little double stick tape to keep it super tight along the fork legs. And by OCD, we mean us, too.
In person, the crown is massive. This photo shows it in relation to the 1.5″ (!) tapered steerer bottom. This should be one stiff fork.
