Bought this to fit to my Ribble GF:
Came to fit it, but noticed that the top of the forks is a lot smaller in diameter to the the current ones. So whats the deal with Road bike forks, I assumed (incorrectly) that as long as the steerer, rake etc is the same they would fit.
Hope this shows the problem:
I haven't removed the old forks yet, but if it does fit it will look rather strange, the fat head tube of the fondo, will make the top of the forks look odd.
