    MIA: The Suspension Fork w/ Many Names?

    Maybe I missed out, but what ever happened to the Carver/? fat bike suspension fork?

    I think I only ever saw one person with one.

    Pink Floyd "Hello, are there any Trans Fats out there, just holler if you can hear me".

    What up?

    That is an old ass thread in mtbr fat bike time man (pretty much like digging up info from 1975 ). How many people are reviewing from personal experience with the fork? Nice try on the search burn, but not recent info by any means.

    Back on topic. Who else has this fork?

    Total of three people who owned them reviewed them. I don't trust one of users because he bought four of them, and may be just promoting them in an effort to sell at a premium.

    There has to me more than 3 floating around.

    That wasn't a Search Burn at all. Just a quick post from my iPhone.

    Agree with you about the lack of useful reviews.

    Fwiw I found the guys at bikeman/carver to be very helpful/low BS when I asked them about the fork. They will adjust the A2C internals while preserving, or reducing, the travel per request. They said its really 100 mm travel at most, not 110. They had intended those stachion guards to be available at intro but mfger had delays.

    Thanks for the update fro. I just found it odd that there was a fair amount of hype then nothing happened. I expected more press from Carver.

    I have one mounted on my 2013 Carver OíBeast. I did not install any spacers so its at the theoretical 110mm max height. I built a front wheel up using their hub and a marge lite rim, Q-tubes, and an ultra light 120TPI Surly tire to save weight. Itís still easy to pop the front up when needed. The bike gained 2 pounds and with durable components is now just under 32#. It really transforms the bike for summer riding. I can go much faster on the downhills and feel less beat up at the end of the day. I donít notice any side to side flex and the fork legs look pristine after a year of riding. I am a big guy (305#) and have it set at max air and so far no durability issues. I find the damping to be fine and have no complaints. I donít need suspension in the winter so rode rigid so canít comment on what itís like in the cold. In summary Ė itís a solid option for folks who want more comfort year round. The Carver guys have always been great to work with.
