I have been waiting for these forks for what seems to be an eternity.
I will post a new bike check once they are here, and when they get here, I will have enough to put together a tramp bike using my Sunday Ian, so I will post that too.

*facepalm
read this...

"14mm axle hole so you can use the low head bolts with the integrated 14mm adapter/deeper broach. I've had a few people complain about the shallow broach on the low heads, and I've wanted to run the adapter bolts on the front for awhile.

The fork will come with adapters so you can run regular 3/8" bolts too. An advantage to running an aluminum adapter is the threads on the axle bolt will be resting on a softer material, resulting in less damaged threads."

the threads that rest on the aluminum are never going into the hub in the first place... unless u ride pegs but even then those threads arent getting destroyed against the chromoly

yeah unless you ride pegs, which also means that if you put pegs on and run them for a while and then take them off and screw in the bolts the part that has been resting on the chromo has flattened threading and you can fuck your shit up.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

more material = the stress load is spread out across a larger area.
ie. strength
