    Fork Help

    Who make a CF disc only fork that can take 29er size tires? Or something that would fit 40C or slightly bigger?

    Help a guy out. All I'm looking for is a CF fork that can fit some monster cross size tires.

    E-Bay has forks, what axle to crown length are you looking for?
    The wheel is a extension of the foot

    Both ENVE and Whiskey carry forks that clear wider (45-50 mm) 700c tires. Check out their Web sites for forks that will work with your specific headtube, rake requirements and brake setup.

    Check out this option: Kinesis DC37 CX Disc Fork. I am not sure of the maximum tire width---check with the manufacturer---but it is on sale right now for $188 (plus another 10% off for US consumers) at the Chain Reaction Web site.

    Thanks again for the help. I have an older Raleigh XXIX SS frame. I was hoping to build it into a SS bike. It is on the heavy side even for steel. I was thinking a nice CF for with something like a 420mm A-C would work and shed some weight.
