I am in the need of a fork with a very specific design:

- Tapered steerer
- Rack/Pannier mounts
- Cage mounts
- The fork should be designed for either a cross- or mountainbike. So either canti or disc mounts.

I realise that there are adapters and DIY solution for most of these requirements. But i would love it if there was a fork which had all, or most of this already. Does anyone know of such a fork?

Thanks in advance,

Emil

i think you're out of luck. I've been looking for something very similar for my road bike and I've had no luck after months of searching. I've found a few non tapered forks with rack and fender mounts but none with mounts for lowrider panniers. i think a diy solution may be your best option

Cage mounts on a fork? That's interesting.

And not uncommon for fat bikes.
Rest of it is the fork you are looking for.

Just use a straight steerer fork and a crown race reducer?

Already thought of that but thanks Jooo :)

The thing is, I would like to have a fork designed for my headtube and not having to use expanders, adapters or whatever.

Tubus has a front rack that mounts to Canti bosses, maybe that could be a solution?
