WATERFORD BUILT FORKS
Waterford’s steel designs truly allow us to match the fork to the frame, whether it’s the superior shock absorption of our light weight race forks, our range of heavy duty touring forks, or our honest-to-God track forks. We can solve special fit and handling issues through our wide range of offsets and steer tube lengths.
Below is a table of fork crowns and their related fork styles:
Eyelets: Many of our crowned fork designs allow up to two dropout eyelets. Some, such as our unicrown designs, allow up to one eyelet. If you are choosing a Wound Up fork, you can add an eyelet for an additional charge.
Blades: Waterford offers several fork blade profiles. Road blades are light blades that are available straight or raked. For touring bikes, stronger blades are required when mounting a front rack. In order to provide lateral stiffness for track riding, track blades are round instead of ovalized, available in a 1” steerer only.
|Rack Mounts: Unfortunately, rack mount locations are not standardized. We offer the following standard front rack mount configurations:The Blackburn specifications are the closest to a standard. Please check with the supplier to make sure. Other racks involve a custom rack mount charge. We ask that you send in the rack so we can ensure a proper fit-up.|
