Thorn 853c Fork on a MK.3 Audax?
« on: August 09, 2018, 07:56:08 PM »
Good Evening,

I have an Audax Mk3 (not R) which I have had millennium carbon forks fitted to since build (I still have the new original steel forks which are probably between the ST 700 low loader fork and the MK4 700c fork).

Not keen on the feel of the ITM Millennium, so my question is, should I just use the standard steel fork or is the new 853 that much comfier?
The bike is for long rides, I have other Thorns for load carring, so comfort is a priority. The cost is 270 plus fitting, which obviously I would rather not spend but I do value comfort in my advancing years! Do you think it is worhthwile?
Has anyone carried out a similar upgrade?

Thank you in advance (and sorry for being a duffer!)
