Description |

The new "Lite" version of the original Barnacle Fork is designed to cater to 26" retro MTB conversions. Crafted for 80’s and 90’s mountain bikes, this fork is an ideal replacement for the original rigid or short travel suspension forks. With its thoughtful design, it enhances the performance of cross, hybrid, gravel, and ATB bikes. The fork's axle to crown measurement of 400mm ensures optimal handling, while its 43mm offset mirrors the classic retro MTB fork geometry for reliable performance across various conditions.
