    Whisky Parts Co

    Has anyone got any experience with the Whisky Parts Co? I'm looking at picking up a fork from them.

    I thought I read somewhere that they don't have a weight limit.

    Let me rephrase your question for you...

    "Does anyone have any experience with the products of a company that just came into existence recently enough that almost no one has heard of them, let alone bought anything from them?"

    That said, Whisky is just another brand created by QBP, like Surly and Civia. QBP also owns Salsa. I would guess that it would be a nice sturdy fork.

    Interesting, I figured they're a new company since most of their products aren't even available yet. I'm just looking for a good CF fork that will handle my 280lbs. Wonder if Enve 2.0 would suit me better?

    As someone in the same weight range, I'd recommend a fork with an alloy steerer. I definitely wouldn't be buying any $400 forks.
    That said, one of my bikes has a lightweight carbon fork on it and it's fine. I just feel paranoid when I'm riding it.

    If only my bike wasn't white, I probably would've given a review of their seatpost right now.

    Foundry bikes (also a QBP brand) stocks these forks stock on their bikes. I'm sure you'd be fine with one. If you're going non-tapered then they only have alloy steerers.

    Add Foundry and Handspun to that list.

    Edit: 88rex already mentioned Foundry.

    My LBS recommended their forks to me based on their own experiences with Whisky's mountain bike forks. I didn't have the chance to actually ride with one equipped, but it seemed like a solid piece. Clean looking, too.
