    How do I or can I buy new fork for my bike?

    I hoping I can add a fork that gives me more clearance for wider tires. Right now I ride on gravel with 30 on the front. It barely fits. Would like more options but not sure how it wil jack up my geometry.

    I know the rake but what else could get screwed up?

    Match the axle-to-crown measurement.

    I can't imagine other carbon forks will offer substantially more clearance. A steel fork however, would.

    Also measure the crown diameter on your current fork, or you could end up getting a fork that fits the tyre size you want, but the wrong diameter will make the fork/headtube junction just look wrong.

    Then do lots of googling.

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    It needs to be the same length axle-to-crown. It needs to have the same offset (rake). It also has to have the same taper (1 1/8-1 1/2) steerer tube. Have fun w/ this.
