Does Fork Stanchion Diameter Matter?
Published on March 12th 2023
Often riders tell Anna Chipullo that as a light rider, she should be on a lighter fork and that a 38mm stanchion is way too stiff for her.. and a bigger rider is expected to find the limits of a smaller fork? So this got Anna thinking, do we need to be sizing up or down depending on rider weight? And how do we know if we are too light or heavy to be on a certain fork?
