    FORK question - De Bernardi track bike - fork swappin'... ???

    Okay, I need some help. I have two De Bernardi track frames. The one, a 51 is complete with fork. The second, is a 53 has a carbon fork.

    I want to keep the 53 but install the fork from the 51. Is this feasible?

    The fork rake of the 51 is 275, while the rake of the 53 is 280.

    Is this a big difference?

    I appreciate any help and insight. Thanks & happy new years!

    Where did you get those numbers? The reason I ask is fork rake is normally 38-45mm so your numbers are completely out of range as a rake measurement.

    The steerer on the 51 might be too short for the 53. Other wise I doubt there is a difference in rake.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Yes I am, I'm actually selling both but the 53 just sold on eBay.

    I'd be asking $400 for the frameset, headset & BB (both Suntour). I sell alot on eBay, check out my feedback, my user id is Zeroboys78.

    PM and I can send you some pics.
