    About the Electric bike fork

    Hi guys,

    I'm Tom,newbie in this forum.And so glad to join here.

    Recently I am looking for the best electric bike .

    And I want to purchase the bike.But I'm more concentrate on the electric bike fork part.

    I am wondering if your guys can give me some advise about the electric bike fork part or you can suggest me the other things about the E bike.

    I want to know which type fork is good for the fat tire E bike,or which brand's fork is the best quality for the E bike.

    Hope you can share something with me about the E bike.

    Any advice/explanations would be so greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time. :)

      Thank you for your reply.I check this two item,seems like the cheap one is more suitable for me.The expensive one is too high classic for the bike.Still thank you for you options.

    The cheap one above will only fit 135mm hub and uses a 1 1/8 straight head tube while the Bluto is for tapered headset and 150mm hubs with 15mm thru axel. So buy your frame according to what fork you want. For fat bikes I suggest tappered headtube with 150mm front hub spacing and 197mm on rear with thru axels.

      Explain why you suggest these specs.

      There hasn't been a fat bike front/ rear dropout standard but the most common ones are 135/170mm, 135/190mm, 150/190mm, 135mm/197mm and 150mm/197mm and from what I have been looking at, the newest fat bikes are all 150/197mm with the thru axel (vs. Quick Release). The thru axels are thicker with 15mm in the front and 12mm in the rear. I'm only predicting that this will be the industry standard but who knows.

        The problem at least for me is the rear dropout widths. The 170 is the only one that has available IGHs. Otherwise you are stuck with a derailleur.

          I didn't know that but for most people a Rohloff is an extreme addition.

          Another fork is the RST Renegade, 150mm, in either tapered or straight steerer. Price is in the $450 range. I looked at this one but since I have 135mm wheel, I would have the additional cost of buying another wheel. I ran across this shop that looks like they make an adapter that may work, but not sure. http://www.ebay.com/itm/252179864139...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

              That's actually a great deal. I paid $400 for my gbm single speed with rigid fork. Add $450 for the rst and that's $850.00.
