    Carbon fork on a Trek Farley 6?

    Trying to find a carbon fork that will work any ideas out there?

    Here's 51 pages of Trek Farley discussion: 2015 Trek Farley 6 and 8 fat Bikes

    Spoiler alert: let me know what you think of the Borealis or Makwa fork when you try one of those.
    it's a challenge some of us are ultimately worthy of.

    Thanks! I guess I'm ordering a Makwa tomorrow...couldn't find enough info on exact fork spec such as length anywhere until I looked here. Looks like that's the closest.

    im not 100% that the Farley 6 has the same frame measurements as the original Farley that i have but i used an ON-ONE carbon fork made by Mitsubishi which my riding buddy installed with some modification/s which included changing the Rotor from 160 to 180 and modifying the brake adapters(?). Set-up has been so far.. .
