Because Jesus Christ himself was reincarnated as odyssey product designer and there is no need for anything else because oddy forks are perfect in every way

What are you expecting? Single legged forks? Crownless forks? The reason is because theres not much to be done with forks. Theres already alot of options for forks. Investment cast/traditional, regular/oversized crown, different offsets, hyrdroform, postweld, tapered/butted/straight, pegless, brakes/brakeless. If you go back a bit, theres even integrated pegs and peg bolts.

Not true. I was thinking forks with triangle legs cuz triangles are strong af. Also maybe a fork that where the top of the legs are shaped like 4 peice bars so like mtb forks a little bit but no shocks. Also maybe a fork that has notches on the steer tube so you can cut it easy to whatever size you need. Or a fork that is modern but has 14mm dropouts

If it aint broke don't fix it

I'm on the vital legit list!

If you want drinks that are like mountain bike fork shape with no shocks you need to look into racing forks.

14mm option died alon with the 14mm front axle it's only used on shitty completes now.

Round tubing is quicker, easier and cheaper to make than triangle tubing

Racing forks are not built to take abuse

Neither are the forks you are describing. Thats just adding two more welds to break. Also wouldn't look so great to most and would add unnecessary weight. Its a weaker and heavier design, theres a reason companies dont use it.

As for triangle tubing- it would be expensive and ugly and wouldn't be any more superior than round-legged forks. Yes, a triangle is the hardest object to crush since it is the best at distributing force. However, this will not make for stronger welds or solve any of the common reasons for forks breaking.

So that means 4pc bars are weaker, right?

I've got old 14mm odyssey Classics on my wall. Now they are sick. Also a vandal hub shell and bearings but no axle. New to wack one up, but still wont have spokes for it

a properly done weld should be stronger than a bend

Depends on where the flex is on the bend and on the weld connection.

Technically our forks are already a triangle.

I see no advantage to two piece fork legs.

I'm not a fucking ref, don't list me.

Also, I could definitely see three piece (4 if you count the steerer tube) fork being stronger, but it would definitely be heavier. Odyssey forks are already strong enough while still being under 2 lbs. And obviously everything else is shit.

And Tim, if you pull the fork legs in on the right two designs, it will look much better. You drew them further apart to make the left seem stronger.

a triangle is not stronger than a circle. a triangle distributes weight over 3 points while a circle distributes it evenly. this is like sophomore level science class shit right here...
