Got an older bike lying around that could use an update? Maybe you’d like to replace the fork with something a little lighter, a little more modern? That’s where Whisky is hoping to help out with their newest carbon forks. With modern performance but sizing and standards that will fit classic bikes, the new forks will allow you to get a bit fancy with your ride.
Starting with the No. 7 Straight RD fork, this one is designed to be the perfect replacement fork for most road bikes with a straight 1 1/8″ steerer tube. Built around a 367mm axle to crown measurement and 45mm rake, the fork offers clearance for up to 700c x 30mm tires.
Given the bikes that this fork will likely end up on, the No. 7 Straight RD uses 9 x 100mm QR dropouts with hidden fender mounts. With a claimed weight of 370g, the fork will sell for $370 and is available now.
Another fork with a 1 1/8″ straight steerer designed as a replacement option for older bikes, the No. 9 CX Disc 12 Straight fork will allow you to upgrade an older CX bike to disc brakes with a 12 x 100mm thru axle up front. The fork has a 397mm Axle to Crown measurement, and offers 43mm of tire clearance while maintaining 6mm of mud room.
Also featuring hidden fender mounts, the fork uses flat mount front brake calipers with external cable routing, or you can use an adapter to run a standard caliper. Priced at $520, the fork is available now.
Lastly, Whisky has a new fork for other oddball frames – specifically those with 1 1/4″ tapered head tubes. The No. 9 RD Fork measures 367mm from axle to crown with a 45mm rake, and will clear up to 700c x 30mm tires.
This one opts for internal cable routing and a 140mm flat mount. Hidden fender mounts are tucked behind the 12 x 100mm axle, and the fork will sell for $520. Available now.
And while it isn’t officially released yet, we got a sneak peek at the new Whisky MTB stem which should be launching soon.
