I just looked through all their social media feeds, can't find any straight steel forks. Remember where you saw it?
It was in the announcement for the 29+ model and one other model - MK6. No photos. Just Stooge staying they'd be equipped with straight legged forks. I stopped paying attention after that. Both bikes in steel. Here are sketches from the Stooge site. Bikes due in June and July 2023.
Ultimately I have no grief with a straight fork beyond not preferring the aesthetic. My Surly Krampus has a straight fork and I think it rides fine for a rigid bike.
FWIW - Previous steel models on the site [Rambler, Scrambler and Dirtbomb] were all equipped with curved forks. So the change caught me off guard. I'm no Stooge expert so I may be incorrectly associating the curved fork asthetic with the brand when perhaps it was just a brief foray in that direction.
