The fork has been out for about a year. I'm not bashing Niner and never had that intention when the thread was created. Niner makes great bikes, but there got to be something said about these ultra light weight carbon forks being suitable for riding on anything other than pavement.Yeah. But to the best of my knowledge this is the first break thats been reported on here. Its certainly not common.
And a good enough impact could snap any suspension fork at the same spot.
