Quiring Custom Forks: Handbuilt to be in Harmony with your Frame
Customer Testimonials confirm what we have known for years: Quiring custom forks ride great!
Nothing can complement a Quiring Frame like a custom fork built by Scott Quiring. In several instances, by getting a custom fork from Quiring, the rake and trail of the fork can perfectly match that of the frame. In other words, a Quiring Fork works synergistically with a Quiring Frame.
Tune your fork to tune your ride
Over the years, Quiring has built just about every style of fork. Most steel forks are the unicrown style with a tapered leg. This saves weight and increases absorption to road shock. A unicrown puts the stiffness and strength in the areas that need it. Closer to the fork’s steerer tube, the stresses are higher and this requires a bigger diameter blade; however, closer to the dropout the fork blade is thinned to improve comfort and ride quality. The Titanium forks use a straight blade that is unicrown shaped.
Steel fork steerers can be made 1 1/8” threadless or Tapered, while Titanium forks feature a 1 1/8" steerer that works with 1 1/8" headtubes or tapered headtubes. (Some forks can be made with 1 inch steerers on special request)
