    Decent but technical specs are incorrect

    By Kyle the commuter

    from Lexington, KY

    Comments about Nashbar Disc/V-Brake Compatible Road Bike Fork:

    The stated 370mm axle to crown measurement for this fork is incorrect. It's possible that by this it means 370mm available radial distance for a tire.

    The actual axle to crown measurement (typically defined as the distance from the center of the axle to the center bottom of the crown race seat) is greater than 400mm, likely about 410mm (I didn't measure it accurately).

    Comments about Nashbar Disc/V-Brake Compatible Road Bike Fork:

    Claimed weight is 1332g, but weighs 1458g. For a flat-land commuter, this isn't great.

    The finish is nice, and the disc brake capability provides lots of potential, but the touring is frame fork is half the weight, and a little cheaper...

    Comments about Nashbar Disc/V-Brake Compatible Road Bike Fork:

    Bought it for a build for my son. It's heavy and it's gloss black. The CX frame here is matte black, so they don't really match, but it looks fine on the bike. It's solid and rides nice, but very heavy. Fine for it's intended purpose.

    Good sturdy fork, but heavy.

    Comments about Nashbar Disc/V-Brake Compatible Road Bike Fork:

    This fork is good and strong, but it's way heavy. Right now I've got it on a Nashbar cyclocross frame set up as a single speed pseudo-mountain bike, and it works great for that. I wouldn't want it on a bike I planned to race. Even for a commuter it seems kind of heavy, but it would definitely handle potholes and stuff fine.

    Comments about Nashbar Disc/V-Brake Compatible Road Bike Fork:

    I'd been riding a lot of dirt roads on the road bike, so I thought I would just convert it to cross.I was on a tight budget and figured I would save money with this fork Only flaw is it is HEAVY! Besides than that it works fine.
