The Matco option is interesting but, looking at the Matco website, it doesn’t appear Matco makes anything in a 6” dual fork.


I guess they stopped making them... not enough demand? I have a flyer that shows them and gives the specs.
As for the Aviation Products wheels ... have you tried calling them? I suppose it’s a possibility that their wheel manufacturer doesn’t make those anymore either.
Just about everything eventually changes, doesn’t it? The only one you can count on anymore is Cubes! :)

Aviation Products does have replacement wheels and bearings for their heavy duty dual fork model. Very friendly folks.

I think the plastic ball bearing cage is what failed in mine.
