Perhaps I am having a brain spasm, but I thought that EXCEL sports in Boulder has or had the fork medalians. They have all sorts of GIOS stuff. They are the exclusive GIOS distributor in the US I believe.

GIOS did a new run of the classic Super Record frame - or at least that is the intent, and I believe it has the fork things.
