Today in Gravel Grinder News we have views on the new SRAM XPLR group, news of a carbon drop bar from Easton, and a new sealant from Finish Line. Let’s go!
The collaboration with several custom frame builders resulted also in a fork with an interesting adjustable geometry, the aforementioned ‘three-pack’ bosses, and internally routed dynamo and brake line routing. Of course, the fork also uses the now ubiquitous 12mm through axle, tapered steer tube, and flat mount brake caliper mounting standard.
There are bikes out there with straight, 1 1/8th steer tube forks that could use a carbon fork to lighten things up, smooth out the ride, (potentially), and maybe offer the user something they didn’t already have in their stock fork. This is the purpose of the Fyxation Sparta QR fork.
