I've often wondered why no-one makes any forks with a girvin vector type design any more. Light, stiff and easy to maintain. Would be even better with a modern air shock.
Would like them a lot more if the fork legs observed a more regular angle of rake, and had trailing dropouts like the old Vectors. They look a little crash damaged as they currently are.Posted 8 years agooxym0r0nSubscriber
I had some carbon Girvins which had a coil spring 'upgrade' over the elastomers. They were great until the seals went on the shock and then they were rubbish!
I traded them in for some Pace RC35s. Just went to try to find some photos, but I think they are in storage at the mo 🙁Posted 8 years ago
Clubber – pretty sure he won the world championships in 1994 on a Proflex – but thanks for trying 😉Posted 8 years agobrantSubscriber
Djernis won his world titles on Ritcheys. He stopped winning them when he signed for Proflex…
I did a photoshoot with him when I was working at MBUK. We went round my mums house and he was eating parkin and drinking tea in her kitchen.Posted 8 years ago
ME: "This is Henrik, mum, he's the world champion".
MUM: "Well, that's lovely, but can you ask him to move his van please, as he's blocking the drive and I need to go shopping".
Still pretty sure he didn't 🙂 I'm pretty sure that he won his last world champ on a Ritchey and then rode for BMW-Proflex while in the rainbow jersey… The reason I'm so convinced is that at the time there was a big thing about whether suspension was better than hardtail and Djernis' change to Proflex was the perfect situation to 'prove' or disprove…Posted 8 years ago
This suggests I'm right:
Hank won all three rainbow jerseys while he was riding for Ritchey
