Double butted Mid School GT Fork

Hello
Does anyone have one of these forks off a bike. I just picked up one and think someone may of done a decal swap. It weighs 2lb & 7oz. roll That's getting close to 3 lb yikes I mean the fork on my 82 GT is only appx 1lb 10oz. This think is heavy.... To heave to be butted moly. Did I get taken?

Re: Double butted Mid School GT Fork

Lol defiantly not an upgrade from my stiletto. Which is kinda heavy to.
I'd like to knock some weight off the front of my speed series. But will not do carbon.

Re: Double butted Mid School GT Fork

2lbs 6oz is what mine are.  The 1 1/8" ones were not that light, but at least they didn't bend hitting rocks on the road.

compared to today's forks they are heavier, but not by that much.. many forks are at the 2 lbs mark now.  In order to see a huge difference, you'd have to go titanium or carbon.

Re: Double butted Mid School GT Fork

Thanks for answering my question. I was going to keep either way. Probly will just leave the stilleto on there though as its probly a touch lighter. It has served me well so far.

This is accurate wink .  I weighed my 20" 1997 GT Cr-Mo threadless fork last year and it came in at 2 lb. 7 oz. (http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=202013).
