    Niner carbon fork quality issues?

    I contacted because my carbon fork had a little play at the race.

    After inspecting the fork stem, the diameter where the race fits was a bit under sized.

    Niner said they have never seen that before that they would sell me a replacement because I was not the original buyer.

    Just wanted to see if anyone has had this problem since all manufacturers deny having quality control problems...

    thanks

    How is this singlespeed related?

    I think your first response in your other thread should really answer your question.

    Typically rigid forks are on SS bikes, but not always. I am assuming the OP knows this and is attempting to increase his odds of hearing from owners who have a NINER rigid fork.

    OK, I ran a Niner CF fork for about a year (straight steerer), and had 2 different crown races, and never ran into this problem.

    It could just as easily be that the race is not exactly right too.. Maybe try a new one.
