Columbus Tubing Cromor Rando fork blades, steel (pair) - .9 wall - length = 450, 28x19 oval - steel

- Sold as a pair -

These Rando blades, ordered from Columbus to our spec, have 20mm added to the top of the blade and 40mm added to the tip, past the taper. The 20mm added to the top allows you to tune the blade for a heavier rider by trimming off more of the taper for a beefier blade. The 40mm added to the tip allows you to trim off the straight portion invariably left by the bender, leaving you with a beautiful curved end and plenty of taper. Or you can keep that added tip, trim off more of the top and get a fork that's more responsive. In other words, it's a highly tunable blade.

Hat tip to Hahn Rossman of Bicycle Quarterly (if you don't subscribe, you should) who originally got the concept for this blade rolling.

**** These blades are NOT a good choice if you want to build a fork with our lug style dropout. When using lug style dropouts, you trim the tip of the blade until the OD of the tip is just slightly smaller than the ID of the dropout socket. With the Rando blades, this would mean trimming off all of the extended tip which sort of defeats the purpose of those blades. A tab style dropout is what you want to use with this blade.

442g (pair) - Weight is based on a representative pair. Actual weight may vary slightly. Keep in mind that this fork blade will have more material trimmed off of it than a comparable 390mm length fork blade, so your resulting weight will likely be pretty similar to a 390mm blade. Imported.

Please see tube graphic in image gallery for dimensions.

NOTE: It is rare for fork blades to fit into a crown on the first try. Wooden blocks in the jaws of a clamp and gentle pressure are typically all that's needed. Compressing the major axis of the oval blades will expand the minor axis and vice versa. Sometimes the inside the crown socket will need to be cleaned up with a file. Do NOT file the fork blade to achieve fit.

"I just remembered something! Can you add it to my order?"

We don't have access to your payment info, so we can't add items to your order.

If you realize that you forgot an item after placing an order, just place another order for the missing item(s) and shoot us an email at to call our attention to it. As a rule, when we encounter multiple orders to the same customer, we will combine the orders and refund you any excess shipping from the additional orders. Please do not select free "local pickup" for the second order, otherwise we may need to invoice you for any additional shipping costs and that just slows things down.

"I got a USPS delivery notification but my order hasn't shown up!"

It isn't uncommon to receive USPS delivery notifications before a package is actually delivered. We're not sure if they sometimes scan the package at the post office before delivery, but typically the package shows up within 24 hours. Please let us know if the package hasn't shown up by the typical USPS delivery time the next day and we'll get it all sorted out.

If an item is damaged or has been sent in error, we will pay for return shipping and replace the item if it is returned within 30 days purchase.

If you ordered the wrong item or changed your mind, you may return the item provided that it is in new condition and within 30 days of purchase. You will be refunded the purchase price minus a 10% restocking fee. The restocking fee does not apply to exchanges.

Please understand that we are not responsible for insuring compatibility of parts in an order. Builders frequently order items for different bikes and there is no way for us to know which parts are intended to go with which parts.
