29er Fork with Bottle Mounts
« on: December 17, 2017, 12:23:00 PM »
Hey guys.

Trying to build up a gravel/bikepacking rig. I have a HT 29er frame I don't use, so I'm looking for a rigid carbon 29er fork to pair with it. I'm planning to put a short-ish stem and 46mm road bars on it.

But, the fork. Anyone know of any Chinese manufacturers making/selling a 29er fork with bottle mounts? Not very particular about A-to-C, but I'd really like to be able to put some Salsa Anything cages on it for additional cargo capacity.

Probably looking to spend $150 max, but I'm flexible. I love the Rodeo Labs Spork, but it's just way, way too expensive for this project (which consists of old parts I no longer use).

Thanks!

I've looked at many gravel options recently, but didn't see any.

Did you consider the mud guard mounts ?
There are usually 3 points of contact, and could be used to build a custom front holder.
For bottles or anything else lightweight.

For instance the Carbonda fork, or Carbonage ( via a reseller ) have what looks to be sturdy mud guard mounts.
