The Bottema Forks are now a modern classic. Based on the classic design from Jeff Bottema these now come with a 1 1/8” threadless steerer tube for more modern applications. Jeff Bottema designed the original Bottema forks in 1978, he chose thicker tubing and longer leg tubes to eliminate unwanted ﬂex. Then, he and Raleigh teammate Toby Henderson tested them to make sure they suited the needs of professional racers.
Bottema forks are built by Tange from 100% 4130-chromoly tubing and feature an innovative dropout and dropout-saver design that works equally well with 10 and 20mm hub axles.
