Whisky Parts Co Adds 45mm Offset Bladed Carbon Rigid 29er Fork
Rigid 29er fans have a new fork option from Whisky Parts Co. A new 45mm offset option joins the original 39mm offset. Also called “rake”, a fork’s offset is measured as the horizontal distance between the center of the axle and the steering axis – a line drawn downward through the center of the steerer tube. Generally speaking, more
offset trail lends a more stable ride but makes handling feel a bit more sluggish. More offset reduces trail, making a quicker handling bike. Check out this article for more on rake, trail, etc.
WPCo says their round rigid forks have a bit more fore-aft give, and these bladed forks are stiffer. They’re available in gloss and matte, tapered steerer only. Axle to crown is 470mm.
