      Comments about Nashbar Carbon Road Bike Fork:

      I bought this in 1", since I assume 1" steerer forks will become increasingly difficult to find. I can't review feel, handling or durability of the fork, since its for future use on an old Merlin titanium frame, once the fork currently on it is past useful life. The fork looks nice, and finish is good.

        Comments about Nashbar Carbon Road Bike Fork:

        Used this to replace and upgrade a cheap Hi-Ten fork on my 1988 Raleigh Technium. turned an already smooth riding bike into an even more comfortable dream of a bike. Along with an upgraded headset, stem, and bars, this has turned my tired tourer into an awesome All-rounder.

          Used it to replace a worn out carbon fork. The brake, bearings, wheel, and stem fit perfectly. I used it with the Nashbar expanding plug as this does not come with a star nut.

            Comments about Nashbar Carbon Road Bike Fork:

            I have several bikes and all but one has this fork. The fork is good at dampening the road bumps and is also durable.

            I have been riding on these forks since 2012 with no issues.

            It is very reasonably priced and lighter than you would expect for that price.

            What else do you need?

                I just wanted to publicly thank Nashbar for processing my fork return (see my review on 10/7/2013). I think Nashbar is simply an outstanding company.

                  Comments about Nashbar Carbon Road Bike Fork:

                  After 2yrs 6 months, 5k miles, the left fork blade cracked around the crown joint. I did not crash, or ride over extremely road roads. I can remember two significant hits on road bumps, but I did not crash or lose control. My weight is 155 lbs, so I think fork stress was not out of expected ranges. I am writting this supplemental review to balance my previous product review and to prompt regular inspection of your carbon fork. So far Nashbar has recommended me to return the product and I hoping for a hassle free return.

                    I wasn't sure what to expect for the price but this fork is outstanding. I purchased it to replace a carbon fork on my Specialized Sectuer that was damaged when someone rear-ended my car... unfortunately with my bike on the back. The feel of this fork is as good, if not better, than the original. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to upgrade to carbon or replace a carbon fork that has been damaged.

                      I installed this fork on a mid 90's Centurion Dave Scott Ironman, replacing a threaded chromoly fork. I also replaced headset, stem and bars with lower end Ritchey alloy. Took a 40 mile ride after installation and was impressed with weight and road vibration reductions. Thanks to Nashbar for carrying the 1" non-threaded head tube version, others with this dimension were 4-5X the price.

                        I broke my last carbon fork in a collision with a dog last year and bought this to replace it. I am not disappointed! I transferred the crown race and star nut myself and didn't have a problem. The fork is very basic and does exactly what I needed it to do. It's lighter than my old fork, but feels just as durable. Very impressed.
