    EGF168 - Your swift looks really nice. I was wondering, how does the Niner fork affect the handling compared to the Swift steel? I have a 485mm a-c, so I'm imagining the steering would be sharper with the Niner.

    Cheers

    Credit taken.

    I honestly don't think it looks all that good on the niner...way better on the Singular, and fits better on carbon bikes...but the function is a different story.

    I donít think I really noticed the handling change much with the different A-C and offset on the Niner fork although the steering probably did get a bit sharper. Itís hard to say that was down to the A-C/offset and not the added steering stiffness/precision of the Niner fork or the lighter steering that comes with loosing 1.38lbs...or all three together. It's well worth the upgrade!

    Interestingly Singular recently changed the A-C and offset on the Swift fork to be the same as the Niner.

    Another Tomac Flint

    Just finishing the build / transfer from my F29, no chain in this pic. It's a medium and I love the proportions of this one.



    Ride tomorrow, stoked to feel how it goes

    care to help me out? which one looks closest to the niner one? i am soon going to be using a niner fork, but want to confidently use spacers above the stem...only 10mm or so...



    On the left is a deda. minimum diameter is probably 23mm minimum. but its long. it uses the shouldered cap towards you to tension the whole shebang.
    middle is edge, same sort of design, but instead of quarter discs, its a divided tube and 2 conical inserts that are squeezed together by the same thing - a shouldered top cap that sits on the steerer top. Diameter is again 23mm minimum.
    the one on the right is an FSA: it uses a thick walled tube, divided into quarters, held in place by an o ring and again, 2 conical pieces to expand them. In this instance the top cap for the stem which you can see in the next picture is quite deep, it acts as the 'stop' to tension them against. it would be no issue to put washers under this to make the distance the expander can sit inside the steerer greater. It has a minimum diameter of 21mm.
    Why all the fuss?
    because niner forks are designed to run with no spacers above the stem, so that the plug (which i believe is similar if not the same as the FSA one here) sits at the correct height to reinforce the steerer where the stem clamps.

    alternative view, this time FSA on the left, washers could go under the top cap? edge middle deda right....


    thanks for any thoughts...

    Similar...

    dRjOn, depending on the height of the stem at clamping area, where it snugs to the steerer tube. I'd go w/ the one that is the longest, or affords the most internal support relative to the stem clamping area/length.

    My details:

    I've mine cut so that I have about 2mm of steerer exposede above the stem. I've run about 11mm in the past, but recently cut it down when installing the fork on the new frame. Now I run a 5mm spacer at the top.

    They all do the same job, just match it up to the stem would be my advice, and use a torque wrench
