How much travel does a Santa Cruz Nomad have?
Wheel size: 27.5″ Front travel: 170mm. Rear travel: 170mm.
How do you know if a fork will fit your bike?
The main thing you need to look for is the steerer size. Most Mtb headtube is 1.1/8″, a few are 1.5″ or the combo of the two, tapered steerer. So as long as the fork is 1.1/8″ you are good to go.
Do new forks come with a star nut?
Typically forks do not come with a star nut. New headsets do, though. Your LBS should have a new star nut for you to shove in there.
Can you reuse a star nut?
Yes, you’ll need a new star nut because they can’t be removed and reused. So if the new fork doesn’t come with one, you’ll need to buy one.
Can you replace the steerer tube on a fork?
If you have cut your fork steerer too short, got a new frame or bought a second hand fork we can fit a new steerer tube rather than buy a new CSU or fork.
Do you need a headset press?
Pressing headset cups into a frame is one of the jobs that many bike owners fret about. It’s really quite simple to do, but it really does require the right tool for the job and that is a headset press, a simple screwing mechanism which ensures the cups remain properly aligned as you press them into the frame.
