Pass the Fork please

A fork is a fork is a fork. No! The fork is an integral part of any bike design. It is a big part in how a bike handles. The fork for a touring bike is far different than the fork for a race bike. Other factors to consider:

What size wheels will be mounted to the bike?

Will there be fenders?

What style and size brakes will be used?

Threaded or threadless headset?

Will there be a rack mounted to the fork and if so what kind?

In this case Gary wants to run 700x28's with the possibility of mounting fenders.
