Strengths:    A well made, strong fork. The dropouts are stainless steel so corrosion and paint damage caused by QR teeth is not an issue. The black paint has a deep lustre and is tough. This fork has multiple attachment points for racks and mudguards, making it a more attractive proposition than a lot of other rigid forks.

Weaknesses:    It's disc brake specific. The only hub guaranteed to fit perfectly is the Enabler hub, which while very good, is also on the expensive side. You can have any colour you like as long as it's black. The Enabler fork is on the heavy side.

Bottom Line:   
As long as the Front Enabler hub is used, a fat front wheel or a standard 29er wheel can be fitted. It provides a stout front end, which has improved handling on my Singular Swift. It might only be available in black, but this fork goes with every colour scheme. The Enabler fork might be regarded as overkill when not running a fat wheel the majority of the time, but I REGRET NOTHING!!

9:ZERO:7 ALUMINUM FORK vs Salsa Enabler fork for stiffness

Front disc spaced hub with a Salsa Enabler Fork??

I'm building a 2013 Mukluk 2 for my wife and I picked up a used wheelset the other day. They are off a 2014 Ti Mukluk so I didn't think that there would be any issues. I bolted the rotors on and test fit the front wheel and rotor hits the caliper mount. So after digging into it I discovered that ... Read More »

Salsa Enabler and On-One Fatty fork

So I was planning on using my Enabler fork with the On-One Fatty since I like the mounts on the fork I use them a lot with a frame bag. There is about a 2mm AtoC difference which is not much but about a 10deg rake difference so I would be a little more twitchy. And that is all the info I can find ... Read More »

Fat frame options that work w/ Enabler fork?

So, I have been toying with half fat. I found a set-up that is marginally acceptable, but am quickly coming to the realization that a full fatty is in order. I have a symmetrical rolling darrel front wheel and Enabler fork. I am having difficulties locating a fat frame that would be compatibl ... Read More »
