    Comments about Nashbar Carbon Road Bike Fork:

    I may not be the guy to shower accolades on a bicycle fork as I readily admit to having limited experience, but I do own CroMo, HiTen, aluminum, and numerous suspension cycles so I know there are differences in ride feel.

    Needing a replacement for a Scott Speedster crash victim (not my accident) I searched the Internet for inexpensive replacements. There were many at a similar price-point as the Nashbar but I wasn't ready to chance buying from questionable "dealers" with no-name products. And, while Nashbar offers numerous choices that would have fit the bill, my level of riding at a few hundred miles a month didn't warrant spending more than was necessary.

    In short, price was excellent, shipping was fast, the fork looks great, and installation was uneventful. I've cranked out a few rides since, weather has been a factor, but ride quality is everything you expect from carbon. This is far from the lightest fork available but for those upgrading to carbon or replacing an OEM, it's a stellar bargain!

      Comments about Nashbar Carbon Road Bike Fork:

      I bought this to replace the severly bent alloy fork on a Jamis road bike I bought. The bike needed a ton of work so I wanted something that would not break the bank. This fork fit the bill. It is a great replacement and a definate upgrade from the original. Put a few miles on it and could not be happier with the performance. Responsive steering and tracks perfect. The only downfall is a slight blemish on one side. One small spot that is totaly black instead of a clear coat on the carbon weave. This bike is never going to be a show piece so I could care less about the blemish.

          Needed a fork in a hurry for my backup road bike. I didn't want to spend a lot and this did the trick. Very easy to install, no problems fitting the crownrace. Rides well.

            Comments about Nashbar Carbon Road Bike Fork:

            Bought this to build a road bike for my 13 year old son from other left over parts. It is a solid fork that rides well and is a reasonable weight. A good fork for all but the most performance minded. It does not mention it in the description, but mine came with a star nut (The headset did too, so I now have 2 extras after ordering one). Cutting an aluminum steerer is easy with a metal blade hack saw, but I strongly suggest that you let a shop install the star nut and the bottom piece of the headset. Those two item are very difficult without specialty tools.

            It seems all bicycle upgrades are easy to install. From cranks to forks, they are all alot easier and this fork was very easy. Takes maybe 20 minutes with the right tools. All the faces were clean. The stay safety tabs are pretty big and i'm not used to having any but I was able to grinde them off without any problem. Exceptional fork.

              Just bought the 6061 roadie frame from Nashbar, and paired it with this fork. I am VERY HAPPY with my purchase! I LOVED my old Italian SL frame, but the new stuff rides like a dream.

              I wanted a carbon fork with an aluminum steerer. I haven't ridden it much yet but so far I am happy with the product. It is nice looking and appears well built. It looks sturdy, but is not too heavy.
