Mehradad..thanks for the info, one question did you actually measure a bontrager fork or did you rely on a secondary source, as I have had two other people tell me the measurement is closer to 410 mm for a MAg 21...note they did not have forks with Bontrager custom crowns?

Thanks,

Vasilis

Hey Vasilis,

I am sorry, i forgot to tell you the 400mm is the length of the Fork legs up to crown. You want the measurement from Axel to the fork raise(on top of the crown)..... i did ride a bonti-crown but i do not have the exact measurements.....

Why don't you ask Keith himselfs....???? He is usally very friendly and answers.... He got a webpage + contact E-mail. Just type in Keith Bontrager by a search engine like "search.com". in case you contact him, please say hello from me.... Thanks.

happy trails
