I call it a fork, but I know many that call it forks. I think it's like pants because it has two legs? lol

From the Fox website: "For 2010, this do-it-all fork is also..."

A singular "fork", just like a fork in your kitchen or a pitchfork is singular despite having multiple prongs.

the most relevant definition I found in the dictionary is "a forked part, tool, or piece of equipment"

For me it varies, I really don't know why, it seems to be random which I use but their might be some decent reason behind it that I'm not aware of. Seems to more often be forks though.

When I ask for a fork at the dinner table, I don't ask for a forks because it has more than one prong thing. So, in terms of bike suspension, fork.
