    can I put a carbon road fork on my rush hour?

    My rush hour has track hubs so do I have to get a track specific fork? I want a carbon straight blade fork with a brake hole. Thanks, Triumph

    yeah just make sure the steerer tube is 1 1/8". you don't have to get a track-specific fork either.most modern front hubs are all the same width.

    Make sure the rake and axle-crown height is close to or exactly the same as the stock fork, or the new fork may eff up your handling. In particular adding too much rake will make your steering less stable.
