    Merlin Magia fork rake

    I had bad crash on my Merlin Magia, but I think my body got the worst of it. That said, I知 seriously considering replacing the fork but am unsure what fork rake to look for. I値l take it to a shop to do the work and I知 assuming they will be able to determine what I need. However it never hurts to do a little homework beforehand.
    Any input from the forum?

    Usually, carbon forks will have a sticker in the steerer tube with serial number, rake, and possibly manufacturer codes. Pull your fork and check. Look for a two-digit number between 40 and 50.

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    Related to head tube angle big time. The slacker the head tube angle the more offset, steeper head tubes = less offset. Normal size frame you're probably looking @ 43-45mm. As Peter P. posted it will nearly always be marked on the steerer somewhere.
