Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork
Nothing will make your cyclocross or touring rig ride smoother than an upgrade to a carbon fiber fork and boy do we have a deal for you. The Nashbar Carbon Fiber Cyclocross Fork features stout carbon fiber legs to soak up the vibrations that also deliver plenty of stiffness to handle hard braking and rough terrain with aplomb. And speaking of braking, you've got options in that this beauty is set up for both cantilever and disc brakes. The aluminum steerer tube is plenty strong and requires a bit less TLC than carbon versions and for those still on frames set up for 1" forks you're in luck as we aim to please with both 1" and 1-1/8" sizes. It's most definitely time to breathe new life into that 'cross or touring machine.
  • Large diameter blades and aluminum crown provide rigidity needed for hard braking and rough terrain
  • Carbon legs soak up the vibrations to save your hands and arms
  • Both disc and cantilever brake compatible
  • Axle to crown = 391mm
  • Axle to Max Tire Height = 366mm

      Comments about Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork:

      I needed a carbon fork that allowed me to mount disc brakes on a cross bike I bought off Craig's List. The Nashbar fork was lighter than the carbon fork already on the bike. After several rounds of heavy duty gravel riding I found no change in bike handling. I am running 700 x 35 tires and could probably go up to 38mm. In summary I have a fork that is lighter than the one I replaced, there is no perceptible change in handling, comfort has increased, I was able to mount disc brakes and run a tire width I am happy with. A great fork at a great price.

        Really psyched on this fork- was mostly concerned about clearance and they have room to spare with a 700x42. Probably not enough room for a fender as well, but I might find out.

          Comments about Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork:

          I upgraded my 2009 Fuji cross with this fork since my bike did not originally come with disc brakes. I wanted to find something equivalent to what I already had and this was it. I caught it at a good deal too. I would say it's definitely good quality, but not top of the line. However, that's not what I was looking for, just a replacement for what I currently have. Definitely a great improvement for my bike. Make sure to purchase the right size and make sure this is the type of fork you need for the bike it's going on.

              I replaced the original steel fork on my older Kona Jake. There were no unexpected problems; and so far the bike rides noticeably smoother. Good upgrade.

                I replaced a heavy suspension fork with this lightweight carbon fork. Its incredibly lightweight. It looks well designed and durable. Time will tell. All I can say is my bike looks great with it, even though the colors aren't a perfect match.

                  Comments about Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork:

                  Used this as a replacement for a pretty massive suspension fork on an old Specialized Crosstrail I converted into a road commuter. Although not as light as an all-carbon option, it does make a huge difference on the bike, especially on hills. I'm currently running it with 700x30mm slicks and cantilever brakes with no issues. I think 32mm tires would still be fine, but 38mm would probably bind a bit up top (I think someone else noted this in another review). After about 200 miles it still feels great; hard to find any fault with it considering the price; I would definitely recommend.

                  Bought this for my recumbent (to allow a wider tire). It appears solid, but you pay a weight penalty for that construction. Much heavier than listed.

                        Added this to our Cannondale tandem so I could run both disc and cantilever brakes. Added bonus it saves a lot of weight over the standard steel fork. Looks to be very beefy ride is nice with no appreciable flex under braking.

                          Comments about Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork:

                          I admit I was very skeptical when I originally saw this fork for sale on Nashbar.com. The price seemed too low for the fork to be of any decent quality. I am happy to admit that I am pleasantly surprised.
                          Although my main sport is mountain biking I have a Kona Jake CX that I use for long distance training on and off road. Things I've noticed over my stock AL fork is: the bike now has that "subtle softness" and the "minor damping" sensation that can be felt through my arms and upper body. I have owned carbon road bikes before and it definitely brings back some of those qualities. The quality of the fork seems good, they seem to have blending the aluminum inserts (dropouts, brake mounts) and aluminum steerer seamlessly into the construction. I was slightly worried about something failing at first but all seems well. I have taken the fork through some basic single track, 40+ mph downhills, and everything in between. Seems to be well worth the price.....couldn't be happier for the price.
