Carbon fork question...(1 post)

Carbon fork question...MVN
Jul 27, 2002 8:17 PM
I got a Kinesis carbon fork with my GT frame. I know next to nothing about fork rake, straight bladed vs. curved blades, etc. This fork has straight blades. Can anyone tell me anything about how those kinds of forks ride, what the difference is between straight/curved blades, and how does rake affect handling? I plan on racing next year with this bike once I get it built up. Would I be better off with a fork with curved blades? I'm not sure I could tell the difference between the two at this point. I'm just trying to learn everything I can about these things. Any info greatly appreciated. Thanks.
