    is my fork backwards?

    I received my guardian today and I'm the fork seems backwards. the stem points the correct direction but the brakes are on my right side.... is this bad?

    here's an image... this is for sure wrong. all other Guardian images seem to have a correctly oriented fork. It was not my fault either. I can't even seem to turn it

    its like that for a reason. the bike fits the box that way, due to the offset and rake of the fork. no worries

    Thats not a mistake. Its that way to keep the box smaller and to protect the stem from rubbing damage. Its the normal way to pack amountain bike in short-pack configuration.

    Make sense?
