    Need help identifying forks

    Sorry for the newbie question but I have looked everywhere and cannot find any info on a set of forks that I have. They are Diamondback road forks with the number DB-FK-02 A7 stamped on them along with 12050048. Overall length is 27 inches and weight is approx. 11oz. Any info would be great. Thanks

    Where'd you get them?

    It's a full carbon tapered (1.25" to 1.5" steerer) fork. From the Diamondback website:

    Fork: DBR AMMP Carbon Competition Road Fork, Carbon Drop outs, w/Taper Carbon steerer tube, CFT Continuous Fiber Technology
    It's part of the Podium frameset for the Kelly Benefit Strategies cycling club in Baltimore.

    Thanks for the info. I actually picked them up at a pawn shop. Its been a while since I've ridden (back when aluminum was hot) and I've never picked up a set of forks that weigh less then my old seat used to so I picked it up hoping to eventually build around them. Any idea what these retailed for? Thanks for all the help

    A pawn shop? What are the odds someone parted out a stolen bike?

    The guy who owns the shop is a retired MD police officer, but anything is possible i guess.

    You won't find them at retail because it's part of a frameset. Diamondback doesn't sell the forks separately.

    Technically it would be alright to reuse the fork. Just make sure that the frame+headset that you're going to use it for is designed to be used with a tapered fork. Also, the steerer should be long enough to fit the total stack height (headtube + stem clamp + spacers) of the bike.

    It would be awkward at best - mixing the fork's graphics with a different frame. Unless you would want to strip it and repaint it.
