    The bend in a rigid fork makes it flex a little. With a suspension fork this isn't needed. But the forward offset of the axle still needs to be there So they just angled it instead.You would be surprised at how common it is to find bikes with the fork installed backwards.Especially low end, or mail order stuff.

    Fork rake is relatively common on forks, they do it to alter handling.

    Question:
    The Headshok fork is not ‘straight’, but angled along it’s full length. I believe this is not like 99% of other dynamic bicycle fork designs but maybe like some rigid steel forged forks for example. Is this overall angle feature common or unique ? Click image for larger version

    I am so impressed by the Headshok because:
    No slop in any direction under all conditions including if / when it 'bottoms' at higher speed in potholes. Like Solid for an instant.

    Headshoch is stiffer and lighter than the Rockshox SID on my XC bike.And that ones not too old to have disc brakes. Very nice find.

    There's 3CM to spare ( whew )
    Exciting, because I didn't know IF it would fit when I bought it by mail from So Cal
    I studied photographs and published specifications but I had to have that special paint ( even if I had to buy some miniature 8AH unknown battery )
