    Suspension Corrected Carbon Fork For Trek Farley 2013

    I have seen these forks from China. How do i know if this is suspension corrected?

    I want to replace the stock trek farley fork for something lighter. Would this work? I was unable to find the geometry, rake and all that other stuff that i don't understand about the Farley Fork.

    that looks suspension corrected. Check the Axle/Crown measurement. Non sus. corrected forks are in the 460mm range. The fork above specs at 483

    Way to go - it wouldn't have made any sense to get the Farley 7 that already had the carbon fork.

    Certainly wouldn't make any sense to me - according to the UK site there is no such thing as a Farley 7! Or a 24 for that matter.

    I can see them on the US site so I have to assume we just aren't getting those particular models in the UK for some reason - wonder how many other regions that applies to?

    Just as well I wanted the 9, which we can get.

    Eventually...

    One thing to look at is if those forks have metal inserts in the through axle section. When I considered one of them the eBay seller indicated they did not. I don't know if they are ALL that way, but it ws enough for me to pick up a Salsa Makwa fork. If you can find one, grab the Salsa.

    It is tough as nails and it is a HUGE difference. I have beat the crap out of mine bombing down a lot of rocky technical stuff with no sign of an issue.
    2014 Farley - far from stock.
    Haro Steel Reserve 1.2 - for zee dirt jumps
    2014 - Stache 8 - Sold but fondly remembered
