      I put this on a Trek 2.3 after cutting the original steerer shaft too short. Fit was perfect.

        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.

          Comments about Nashbar Carbon Road Bike Fork:

          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.

                  Comments about Nashbar Carbon Road Bike Fork:

                  It's a fork. The quality control on it it fine, The only problem I had with it is that the crown was not chamfered, making installation of the crown race without giving the crown a few quick swipes of a file impossible.

                    Comments about Nashbar Carbon Road Bike Fork:

                    I recently bought a fixed gear bike 54cm CMS frame painted flat silver. The bike looked good stock but was intrigued by the look of the carbon nashbar fork, clean, simple and basically the same geometry as my stock fork plus the price was nice compared to "name brand" forks. Not only is my bike lighter but seems more responsive and the road vibrations are minimized to almost zero. I had my LBS install it because it required some cutting and I didn't want to make a mistake and ruin a nice component. Wow! I must say that the fork looks like it was made for this bike. Most die hard fixie riders I bump into like what I've done, but do ask me if the fork is strong enough for "tricks" etc. I myself don't do "tricks" because I use the bike for training, commuting and long rides. Not sure if I would recommend this fork for that purpose but if you want to upgrade your "fixie" so it will handle more like an expensive road bike then by all means this is highly recommended.
