    carbon 29"/mtb forks

    so....we've got some nice ones from niner, whisky etc. seems as though intense might be having something similar? there are the chinese ones and of course on one do we think easton and enve might get in on the game? they have had some sweet looking forks at eurobike?

    The Whiskey fork and the Chinese fork are the same from what I can see.

    yeah...the hard eddie fork looks strikingly similar too!...not necessarily a bad thing, i just wonder if easton and enve might enter the fray as there does still seem to be a market for rigid forks....certainly i wouldnt be sorry to see them in the mix!

    Specialized Chisel, Ragley, X-Lite, Kinesis Maxlight IX, Hylix, Carver, Ratio Anthrax and Stevens Sonora come to mind but there are a good few more.

    I have ridden the above Chinese one and I thought it rode as good as the niner carbon fork I had ridden in the past.
    Still prefer the truss fork on my Blacksheep though.

    I kinda feel sketchy about order forks from china since it wouldnt be easy to contact them if something is wrong

    Sorry but it is and warranty has been extended in the past.
    Email to China is just as quick as email to Niner.
