How to identify backward forks?
I have noticed that many bike enthusiasts have talked about the problem of reversed forks on pre-assembled bikes, especially ones sold in large stores. I have decided to buy a NorthRock Xc6 MB from Costco. Judging from the reviews its a good bike for the $$ and it would be hard to find a better value at a LBS.
Many people who have seen the bike at costco have noticed that most come with forks installed backwards. I am no expert on bikes so its very hard for me to identify it. Is there a way to tell and make sure i get the right one. Maybe some diagram or close up pictures to make it easier for me to spot. Thank You
