Does anyone know the distance between the forks themselves? :question:

Thanks! While you've got out your tape measure, could you measure from the inside bottom of the fork to the tube pivot points too?

Ok BB. Looks to be about 15" between the forks, tough to get an accurate measurement with the OTA in the way. The distance from the inside bottom of the forks to the pivot point is about 15-1/2".
