    Most people ply the Well Trodden Path. A few seek a different way, and leave a Trail behind.

    Rad. My old local shop, Bath Cycle & Ski, which puts out Carver stuff, is really stepping up their game!

    Straight steer IS an option

    Of course, with a straight steerer version available, the Trans-Fat fork will work on almost any fatbike on the market

    Hi All,

    We have both straight and tapered models available! There is ample clearance for 4" tires on 82mm rims. We have set up 4.8" tires on 68mm rims and this fits with very tight clearance.

    Best,
    Carver Bikes

    What are the internals like? Oil/air? Not that many people will probably use the suspension in the winter, but I wonder how cold, slow oil will affect the damping. Then again, who cares, I'll never be able to afford one.

    With all the companies threatening to import this exact same fork it's nice to see someone actually do it. Good job!

    Nice to know... yeah I didn't see the straight steerer option. So what is your opinion on if I wanted to keep my 100mm clown shoes and throw a Knard or other 3.8" tire on the front? I would assume that would fit. Might be a nice option for summer.

    We have set up the fork with a Clown Shoe with Big Fat Larry 4.7" tire and there is about 5mm of clearance on either side, but keep in mind that's when the tire is perfectly seated. Clown Shoe and Bud or Lou is a no-go, however.
