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

Bought this to build up a cyclocross/ commuter bike. Carbon with disc and canti options for this price can't be beat. Would buy this fork again for sure.

    Comments about Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork:

    Have replaced the straight bladed aluminium fork on my MARIN FAIRFAX SC2 with this one.

    With this fork, the bike is stable in 'out-of-the-saddle' sprints/ climbing.

    I'm a big fan of curved fork blades and 'V' brakes - this is one of the few forks I know of that still ticks both boxes.

    The shape of the drop outs and blade junction means one has to align Shimano QR skewers in front of the fork blade instead of straight back/ parallel to the ground.

    We've got 3 delivered so far (in India) and all have arrived in perfect condition - take a bow Nashbar's packing team.

      black crown paint chips easily

      Comments about Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork:

      Nice fork, but the black paint chips very easily on top the crown (under the bottom race.) Hard to fix the paint with brush on emamel. Carbon blades with aluminum painted crown and aluminum steerer. I bought it to go with the Nashbar touring frame 60cm and it is a good fit for that. Will use it with canti brakes, even though I could go disk for the front if I want. Seems like a good sturdy combination alloy and carbon fork. Should last long, with chipped paint crown!

        Great Fork

        By Matty

        from Melbourne, Australia

          Comments about Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork:

          This is my second set of these forks - the first met its end in a collision with a car and cracked at the steerer-crown junction. It was a big enough hit to bend my front wheel, so the damage was not the fault of the fork, it had already survived several years of commuting. The carbon fork blades were undamaged. The new version now has a disc brake cable retainer, and masked painting around the fork dropouts so the finish doesn't crack - good product improvements! Happy to have bought another one, they're very good value.

          Great for Old 27 inch Wheeled Frame

            Comments about Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork:

            Got this fork for a 1970s style road bike with 27" wheels. The axle to crown length is almost perfect for this type of bike. Standard replacement road forks are designed to fit 700 wheels and would be too short for a frame designed for larger 27" wheels.

            It does require a few extra parts to convert the brakes from road caliper to cantilever but they're inexpensive to get and install. I may even try a 29er front wheel with disc brakes in the future.

            In my conversion, this fork turned out to be about half a pound lighter than the old steel fork. It also has slightly less rake, which quickened the steering just a little.

            Comments about Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork:

            I bought one of these for my older bike frame and loved how the bike rode after the change. I decided to get one for my Giant Seek 1 that I use for everything from commuting to trail riding. First thing I noticed was that it was shorter then the factory fork, second thing was the weight, nearly half that of the old aluminium one. With the new lighter, shorter fork installed I found the bike was much more stable in turns. Turn in is quicker and control is much better. The feedback through the bars is much clearer even though the ride is smoother with less jaring bumps that I had with the aluminium fork. If you don't have loads of money to spend on carbon parts I highly recommend this fork. The only down side is that the black paint over the aluminium crown and drop outs is on the thin side. scratches don't really bother me and if that is the only down side it is worth its price and more.
