    Unit getting a carbon fork. Suggestions?

    I've got a 2014 sitting in the garage that is getting some updates this winter. I'm hoping to have a pretty sweet Unit for summertime singletrack. Right now I'm looking at putting a carbon fork on it. Niner or Whisky? Does it matter?

    It matters as far as axle to crown and tire clearance.

    Good deal. I remember when I paid much, much more for that fork, and still got my money's worth.

    Perhaps Niner is about to drop a new, longer axel-to-crown carbon rigid fork??? 480mm?

    - Never rode a Whiskey fork but I do ride a Niner (pretty old setup with 1-1/8" steerer) and it suits my needs so very well........
