Salsa Firestarter Steel Fork

Salsa Firestarter Steel Fork

The Salsa Firestarter Steel Fork is the exact same one spec'd on their Fargo drop-bar mountain bike, so it's perfect for either replacements on that bike or for similar builds. It's got the company's Three-Pack Mounts for "Anything Cage" compatibility, and it also features forward-facing stainless steel fork dropouts for safety. This is designed for a 29 inch wheel, and the offset is 45mm. The straight steerer tube starts at 300mm, and the fork weighs 2 pounds 10 ounces that way.

  • Axle to crown length: 483mm
  • Fork rake: 45mm

Tire clearence?
Elknotty on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: At the bead diameter of my 650B rims, the distance between the insides of the two fork blades is 3.625 inches (92 mm). The distance from the crown to the bead diameter is more than 5 inches (127 mm).
Will this ever be back in stock?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2016

Would this be a good replacement for a bike with a fork that has 100mm travel?
Chris on Apr 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will most likely work well. It's going to be at least close to correct to most 100mm forks. Ideally, specifics such as the offset (rake) on the fork you are replacing and the crown to axle measurement your frame is designed for should also be taken into account.
My current fork has a ATC of 440mm with 45mm of rake. How would this fork affect my ride quality?
Matt B on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There are a few things I would want to know before giving you a definitive answer but I can tell you every time I raised the front end on a bike it usually works out for the best. On my cross country style bikes I try to set up the saddle height even with the handlebar grips and a taller fork is a great way to start getting that front end up. Have you ever had a steel fork? Its nice and this one has all types of places to attach stuff.
