O.B.C.A. Fork Testing Machine Progress

This fork testing rig is designed to perform all six CEN static and dynamic load tests to bicycle forks.  The OBCA is grateful for the efforts of FSA in providing headsets and to Dave Levy, Andy Newlands, Andrew Drummond, Ron Sutphin and Spencer Houser for many hours of design and fabrication work on the test rig.  This is still a work in progress as the pneumatics for the dynamic fatigue tests have yet to be applied to the rig.  We anticipate completion in the summer of 2013.
