    I may have a fork,
    do you want shitty brakes or like LX grade and better?

    Pretty sure I still have a 26" steel fork in the basement with a 1 1/8" threadless steerer and canti bosses. I'll dig through the parts bin this evening.

    Unbroken would be a great start, and preferably low-profile, but if you have something too good to pass up, let me know.

    I may have what you're looking for.. fork and brakes. Let me check my parts bin and take some pics. I gotta warn you the fork is purple with threaded steer tube. It was off a Specialized Stumpjumper M2... or was it M4. Don't remember.

    20170617_082838.jpg Here's what I got. The only problem here is the fork's steer tube is 1", not 1-⅛" and it's about 5-¾" long. Not pictured are brake levers if you want those, too. If not then they're going to Second Hand Bikes some time this summer.

    20170617_135943.jpg 20170617_135943.jpg How about this fork? 1-⅛" threaded. Practically brand new. Was a hybrid take-off.

    is that for a 26r? If 29 could use for a frame I'm donating to a bike exchange

    No, I'm afraid it was for a 26er.

    Here's what I have. It's a Tange steel fork, approx. 410-415 A-C and 185mm 1 1/8" threadless steerer.

    I just measured, and this won't work for me, but thanks. It looks like I will need a minimum of 230mm for a threadless fork to get the height up high enough. I would have preferred a more 'classic' geometry frame like a Bridgestone, but I've gotta work with what I've got (and I can already see the fireworks if I took apart mom's Trek, so that isn't going to happen). If the right/cheap frame comes along, I'm not opposed to re-starting with a 1" head tube...

    So, I'm going to update the first post with the following information, and leave this thread open, but eventually I'll just need to buy a [new] fork, if nothing comes along:

    -Threadless 1 1/8: needs at least 230mm steerer length
    -Threaded 1 1/8: needs at least 165mm, 175mm preferable
    -Lugs preferable to unicrown (ha, that's a stretch), Would like 58-60mm actual space in between the legs, a little less okay.
    -Doesn't need to be a mountain bike fork, as long as it is 398 axle-to-crown (or a bit more), which would almost guarantee that it is coming from a touring bike/mountain bike, anyway.
    -The above can be slightly lower, if there is more offset to the fork (+45mm)
    -Cantilever studs preferable to disc mounts, but I can deal if something nice comes along.

    Hey, if it's threaded, it only needs to be 6.5" :)

    I'm trying to avoid having to buy an expensive threadless stem that could make a shorter steerer work...doesn't make sense, for a parts bike.
