    Default New Parlee Cross Disc Fork

    Does anyone have any real world experience with the new Parlee Cross Disc Fork? Specifically the TA version?

    Mentioned here and here?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Though Kevin at FF brought it my attention for my upcoming bike. I'm pretty excited about it.

    It's solid, it has all the things forky. TA, internal cable routing, fender mounts too.

    It's good stuff, done a few bikes now.

    Same here. A small concern is I just had two sets of wheels built with WI CLD at 12mm axles. I need to see if WI will exchange them for the 15mm setup this fork needs.

    Can the fork be purchased by itself?

    The internal routing looks cool. And the included fender mounts look great, and that save having to modify the Enve.

    Yes. To the public, I'm not sure. But to builders (at least Firefly) yes.

    This internal brake line routing looks pretty sweet.

    My understanding is the numbers are the same as the Enve Cross Disc Fork; that would be 47 mm.

    It doesn't come pre-drilled for calipers, but you should be fine drilling it yourself. Don't forget to file the slots of the calipers.

    You may be able to have Parlee modify one to have less tire clearance, shorter legs and a straight steerer.

    No idea on those. All my info is coming from Firefly or the internets. You should call Parlee and ask. Report back if you learn anything?

    Looking at the Z-Zero XD, and comparing to the Z-Zero Disc, it looks like they are making two similar but different forks. The XD has a lot more clearance (reportedly the same as the Enve Cross Disc which accommodates 47mm tires) and I suspect a longer ATC.

    I believe this is the same fork they're using on the Chebacco. It is designed to clear 45mm tires and 40mm with fenders. So it does have a bunch of clearance.

    Correction. The Enve Cross Disc accommodated 45mm tires. Rake of 47mm, 45mm tires.

    Those are Clement X'plor 40mm tires.
