Technology:

The fork of a road bike can be straight or curved for more comfort. The most recent models are made of carbon for a gain in weight and rigidity, the older versions are in aluminum or steel. It is fixed to the frame of the road bike by means of a headset which ensures its rotation in the tube of the frame. The stem is fixed either in the tube of the fork of the road bike (plunger system) or it is tightened on its tube (headset mounting).

The biggest brands of road bike fork are Look, Time, Dedacciai, Columbus, ...

Compatibility:

Choosing a fork to be assembled on a road bike requires to identify the following criterias:

  • the diameter of the front wheel
  • the braking system: disc or brake pads on rim
  • the diameter of the fork tube: conical or straight
  • the type of stem assembly: plunger or headset
  • the shape: straight or curved
  • the weight


For high-end road bike models, the fork is generally paired with the frame, in fact, the geometry, the colors and the shape correspond to a frame model. The use of a fork not designed by the brand and for the frame model can modify the hunting angle and therefore the behavior of your road bike.

Since the geometry of a road bike is very close to that of a fixie, it is possible to use a fork designed for a road bike on a fixie.

Assembly:

The assembly of a road bike fork does not require any specific tools except if the headset is screwed onto the pivot (plunger system), in this case flat keys or specially designed for the brand and model headset may be required.
