The Salsa fork will ride smoother, but it will flex more than the KM fork. You'll be fine on the KM fork at your weight.
is a nice alternative. It may be a bit longer then the OE KM fork though @ around 480mm A to C.henryhb said:hi!
my weight is about 110kg. i own a surly karate monkey fork right now. i own a surly instigator fork, too. the wall thickness of the karate monkey fork is smaller, so i think about getting a more stable one (if available) from different brands.
how does the salsa 29er fork compare to the karate monkey fork?
or are my worries about the karate monkey fork unfounded?
Yes, that's one of the older all steel forks in the picture. I've had it a few years and don't remember the specifics of the fork. Sorry.Tessaiga said:Hi, is that the older Salsa Cromoto Grande?? the one that comes with the true temper ox platinum tubing???
Were all the older models (the ones without the stainless steel dropouts) made with this tubing??
