    Comments about Nashbar Full Carbon Road Fork:

    I bought this as a replacement for a Ouzo Pro that got damaged while traveling. I was in a hurry and on a tight budget and this fit the bill. This fork feels better than the Ouzo on my 06 Litespeed. It's stiffer laterally while still compliant enough longitudinally for a nice ride. It is composed during heavy braking and cornering. In short it complements my TI frame really well and even looks good with it, although, I don't think it is a particularly good looking fork but that's subjective. When seen from the front it has a thick profile so it is probably not the most aerodynamic fork. Not an issue for me. Installation was straight forward except the crown race was a very tight fit. Another thing I noticed was that the steerer tube wall tickness was not uniform but it doesn't seem to affect performance. Even though this was meant as a short term solution I am planning on keeping it so I hope it is durable as well. Really as good or better than some forks that I paid twice or more for. Well done.

      Comments about Nashbar Full Carbon Road Fork:

      I installed this fork on my 2012 KHS Flite 720 after a crash. The original fork had no visible cracks but I no longer trusted it.

      What I really like about it is that it fit perfectly and comes with the plug. My bike has a very large head tube with a couple of spacers on it and this fork fit perfect. Did not have to cut it. The finish was perfect.

      It is a lot lighter than the stock fork. It made the bike feel more crisp and responsive.

      I highly recommend it.

        Comments about Nashbar Full Carbon Road Fork:

        I have a Trek 1.1 road bike that came with their aluminum fork. While pretty lightweight already, the ride wasn't the best. I bought this Nashbar full carbon fork after the good reviews... and it didn't disappoint! The combination of this fork and the lighter Nashbar 700x25 tires took a full pound off my bike, in addition to the much better ride. I am 220 but the fork hasn't show any signs of difficulty handling me :)

        The steer tube plug: This is my first carbon fork, so I had to look up how to install the steer tube plug since it is different than all others I've had before on aluminum (I'm primarily a mountain biker). There were no instructions on that plug (or I could have overlooked them)... what you do is: remove the top cap first, then you will see another allen screw below that. Put the plug into the steerer and tighten to the torque specs listed. This tightens the plug into the carbon steerer so that you can then tighten the top cap to pre-load the headset correctly.

          super lightweight fork that took 300gm off my previous carbon fork which had alloy steerer. looks good in carbon finish (could use a few decals to brighten up)and quality of finish was excellent. came with good quality expander plug. took it to my LBS (Performance) to cut steerer and fit crown race ($20) then took 10 mins to fit - rides light, stiff yet comfortable.with the 20% coupon another outstandng value from BN.

              This is a great fork,especially at this price. I replaced the stock carbon fork on my Giant TCR. The Nashbar fork is stiffer and it took nearly a full pound off. I highly recommend.

                I think it will go well with my Leader 725 but need to install it, so how best to cut the extra long pipe?

                  This fork is well worth the money! I've been using it now for about 6 months and I have no complaints. I'm very critical of bike parts and I really only expected to use this fork for a short time until I could buy an expensive name brand. I think I'll save my money and keep this one.

                    The feature I like the most about this fork is its lateral stiffness. The front end doesn't sway when climbing hills. I feel better connected to the road when cornering.
