    Need 1" Carbon Fork w/ Clearance for 28mm Tires

    I'm trying to find a carbon 700c fork with 1" steerer and clearance for 28mm (measured) tires with a little room to spare. Trying to keep the price below $100 at the same time. Nashbar has a carbon 1" fork and I can find some old reviews claiming that they will fit. Can anybody vouch for the clearance on the Nashbar fork or does anybody have any other suggestions that will meet my criteria? Thanks.

    No problem.

    I just checked mine with 25 mm tires and have 5 mm each side and more at the top.

    I have the fork on my Merckx and can reccomend it as well.

    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    here's a pic of a dusty bike with said fork. That's a 25 mm tire on a wide rim too.

    Bikerjulio,

    What brand and model of tire and rim are you running? I'm curious if you're on the +/- side of 25mm. Thanks again.

    Sorry, too many wheels. That pic is a Michelin Pro4 25 mm on a Neutron, measures 25 mm exactly. With 5 mm each side.

    This is the same tire on a Pacenti SL23, measures 26.3 mm. There's a comfortable 4 mm each side. Plenty of room at the top. That's just the angle.

    So, a true 28 mm should be fine, with over 3 mm each side.
