Dummy Fork

The DF-1 Dummy Fork is an essential companion for any scenario that requires dropping the fork from a bicycle, enabling complete removal of the fork while keeping the handlebars, headset spacers, and brake caliper organized. The DF-1 installs into the headset and is held in place using the bike’s stem. The 1 1/8" steerer tube features a star nut for retaining the top cap and spacers, while the 2" flared cone allows for compatibility with tapered steering columns. The integrated brake holder features mounting holes for attaching all styles of disc brake caliper as well as most rim brake caliper styles, while the included pad spacer protects hydraulic disc brakes from accidental engagement. The DF-1 is nickel plated and powder coated for long life.
