Hey there! I’m thinking of replacing the beautiful Columbus Futura Cross fork on my Macho King ACE. (Long story involving the toll of being a mom to two kids and bike fit for techy gravel.) I’ve ridden this fork on the default 47mm offset with two different sets of wheels. I’m trying to choose an offset for a Spork. I was thinking of the 45 mm offset for longer trail and a ride that favors stability on steep descents. Does this seem right? What would you do? I’m not planning on loading the fork super heavy.

Hey Alex, thanks for reaching out about our Spork! Without knowing more about the size of frame you ride and the specifics of the geometry, it sounds like you’re on the right track. The 45mm fork will give you more of the handling characteristics you’re looking for whereas the 50mm fork would be  more stable with weight. One thing to be conscious of as you go with a lower rake fork is toe overlap when making tight turns. Your front wheel is going to get tucked in a little bit more so I would take a look at your current set up and make sure there is a little bit of clearance there.
