Title: Heresy Descend 0/15mm forks
Post by: TRUTH1970 on August 14, 2016, 10:29:22 AM
hi all ,got these on Friday after a couple of good rides on em thought i'd post some pics and give a little review for them on flat only as I don't ride street/park anymore. but check the edit Alexis dropped and u can see him putting them to good use.The welds look real clean ,the steerer tube is plenty long with cut lines which really help, i'll cut mine down but i'm getting used to a new topload stem and not quite sure what height i'll end up with. The 0/15mm offset adaptors fit good with no rattle and change from 0 to 15mm is so easy.what would be cool is that if u had a set of adaptors that were half way between 0/15mm ,then u could have even more choice of offset . Thanks to Alexis for the rad deal and super quick time I got them as having no forks as my last ones bent real bad and having back in the day broke my nose wrist and a bad knockout jumping stairs I know don't mess with forks that have had their day. thanks and I will post more updates after more time on them. peace shane

Yeah thanks for the write up.  :mellow: 
Scrap bikes from the Philippines made this design a long time ago with 0 - 10mm offset, and Enemy bikes also from the Philippines also have this design currently.

You can go back more than 10 years and Wethepeople had the adjustable offset as well.

It was a great idea that didn't take off.

my brother had forks called  el palomino ( not at all sure the name is right - it's been a long while) that looked just like the we the people ones only years before. he loved them just too heavy and he only rode zero rake.  Back to the Heresy ones , i'm stoked to be on a Heresy part but to be honest I think the adaptor idea is a bit over engineered - think they could get away with just two holes for the axle leaving a stronger looking dropout. I know it would mean fully undoing the axle stud . will post more updates on how they hold up. thanks

I remember the Sunn El Palimo forks well.
While I am sure they were heavy, that has more to do with the style and fashion of flatland parts at the time. WTP also did a similar fork slightly afterwards. But I think the real pioneer designer of the offset fork was Ozone (circa 1988) as that fork was specifically designed for flat and with adjustable offset.

I confirm the correct spelling by TRUTH1970 : Sunn El Palomino

design by Marc Etienne Dalgé and the Mexicos team, released in 1997
