    tricks on a carbon fork?

    how do carbon forks hold up on trick bikes? I found one for a good deal online but I don't know if it would collapse if I beat the heck out of it like I do with my steel fork.

    Well I'd take into account the kind of fork. Are most road or track forks suited for the impacts from wheelies and such? Would a solid mtb fork be better?

    I don't know anything about tricks so I assume these kinds of questions go through your heads, right?

    nothing super crazy, just stuff like barspins and bunnyhops, just screwing around in the street, but i also play bike polo on occasion. i think a carbon fork would hold up, but im just wondering what other people have experienced, as i only have experience with a carbon fork on my scandium race bike, which i definitely don't mess around on.

    I had a carbon fork on my trick bike for less than a week before it split at the 'crown'. Carbon is fine for road bikes and on the track, just not for any street tricks.
