So I've got this SDG that has been a beast as far taking a beating, but I finally raked out the forks. It's not the frame, the forks bent below the tripples so its time to replace them. The width of the tubes are 35mm at the tripples so couldn't I just swap those out with some inverted zoke clones, grab a new 12" front and be on my way?

The only problem I see is the height of the steering stem. It's oversized so the trips are spread further apart vertically but I'm guessing that won't matter of the tubes are the same diameter the whole way down right?

Yeah..I think the SDG uses a 220mm steering stem but you can use any 35mm fork....I think I have some stock SDG style forks if ya interested to just replace what ya got

I'd really like to go inverted and also shave some weight. Those 'stockers' are around 35lbs, but I'll definitely keep it in mind that i can snag those from you if I need them. I might end up trying to do that anyway, I can't justify throwing too much money at the SDG.

So you had to change out the tripples? I thought they would hold those fast-aces?

Was my 35mm measurement wrong? >,<
