What forks can I used on the Fog Cutter?

You can choose a third party fork or one of our color-matched options. 

-- If you want to choose a third party option, please look something with the following specs. 1-1/8" non-tapered steerer, 390-400mm axle to crown length, and of course something that will fit the bike hub on your front wheel. 48mm rake is ideal. 44mm rake is acceptable. Please follow their instructions carefully.

-- Our carbon fork that takes flat mount disc brake and 12 x 100mm thru-axle hubs. Thru-axle is included. The alloy steerer allows you to uses about 60mm of headset spacers safely.

Can I do loaded touring and bike packing on the Fog Cutter?

Short answer is yes you can.
You can use bikepacking frame bags, seat bags and bar packs. You can install a rear rack, though because of the short chainstays, we recommend getting a rear rack that is long enough to offset your panniers far back enough to avoid heel/pannier clipping while pedaling. (Our Rakku and Deco are long enough for this) Our matching forks do not have rack fittings, but the steel fork can work with mini racks that come with P-clampsNeither fork will work with pannier racks.

Rear and front loads affect the handling of road frames more than on purpose-designed touring frames. For a more pleasant ride experience keep loads in the back under 22 lbs and front loads under 10 lbs.

We do not recommend the Fog Cutter for extended off-road touring or bike packing. We make other models that are better suited for those uses.

Max. weight limit with load and rider: 270 lbs.(123 kgs.)
