Fork Length

You don't figure out how long the fork needs to be, we do it for you.

First you need to get your frame, rear wheel & tire, front wheel & tire and a flat surface. 

Mount the frame on the rear wheel and prop the frame upright as it would be on the bike.  Then get a piece of paper, a tape measure and something  to write with.
