- 2014 Croix de fer Carbon forkness
Think my CdF is 2016 but when I swapped the fork for a carbon it saved a tonne of weight and slightly more responsive but the latter could have been in my head.Posted 3 months ago
To be honest I’d just go for a Genesis carbon fork, not overly priced (or weren’t when I got mine) and the quality is fantastic.
Saying that I did run a chinese carbon fork on my old road bike (full carbon steerer jobby) than was fine and I’m not exactly a lightweight.fudge9202Member
Here you go, wish this was about when I had my Cdf,Posted 3 months agolegometeorologyMember
I think you’re going to struggle. I may be wrong, but I think the 2014 and earlier CDFs had a shorter fork than the post-2014 ones. Yours may be 380mm axle to crown, the newer ones are 400-405mm or something.
A 380mm straight steerer carbon fork with good clearance will be hard to find…
To be honest though, I’d not bother. May be free up cash from the forks and get some nice wheels?Posted 3 months agoGHillSubscriber

I think this is correct. I’ve got the Genesis aftermarket carbon fork for the 2014 CdF (it has an alloy steerer and mounts on the sides), think it was roughly £150 but no idea if a Genesis dealer can still get them. Mine was ordered via 18bikes.Posted 3 months agolegometeorologyMember
Ah, I was a bit off, looks like 387mm, so a 400mm wouldn’t be quite so far off. Will likely slacken it by just over 0.5 degrees and raise the bb 5mm.
Brother Cycles Kepler fork may work.Posted 3 months ago
