  • Winter (road) fork – struggling to find one

    Just bought a second hand bike for winter duties. Frame is good, proper eyelets, but the fork is really tight for clearance and doesn’t have eyelets. For good measure, it also has a shape to it that means my old Raceblade isn’t sitting nicely.

    Had a look around for alternatives but can’t find many. It’s a 1” 1/8th steerer, but all I’ve really found so far is the Tifosi mudguard fork for around £100, which admittedly will probably be fine. Does anyone know of any other options that I might be missing? Carbon preferred but open to options. Brake is already a deep drop so that’s taken care of

    Have you looked at Ribble,they do a cheapish sportive fork,don’t know what the clearance is like though.

    There’s a great range of roadon forks on one of the german sites, bike duscount.de possibly.

    I found quite a niche carbon fork that way, straight 1 1/8 steerer too

    Try Kinesis, they do a good range of forks but probably not many that aren’t disc nowadays.

    Ribble was my first thought, nothing suitable these days

    Did actually notice those Radon forks but didn’t really pay attention. Was bike-discount that had them iirc

    Edit: nothing suitable there either. Not fancying gambling on another fork that only might take guards (with adapters)

    Pretty sure Spa Cycles do a carbon fork for their audax bike which might work?

    Well if 2 people are saying the Spa one…..

    Think Tifosi are just Chinese carbon rebranded?

    I have a Kinesis DC19 fork in the shed.

    Would that be any good?

    Thanks! But sadly not. I’m not running discs on this one

    Thanks for everyone’s help, now have a very nice looking Spa Cycles one on. Finally not annoying bands or the like holding on mudguards!
