I own a 2019 Croix De Fer 10 and would like to replace its fork since I recently damaged it. I went on Genesis's website to try and find out exactly what kind of fork it is, I am quite new to bike maintenance and cannot tell by just looking at it. The only thing I managed to surmise it is a unicrown straight steerer...I think it's 1 1/8".
I would love if anyone had any suggestion for a replacement fork I could get or if they could help me understand how to look for the right one.
I found this:
but I am not sure it would work.
Does the replacement need to be a straight steerer or can I also use a tapered steerer (maybe with an adaptor)?
What should I look out for? Will my mechanical disc brakes fit on it?
I just don't know what to even look for to go about and find a replacement. I have tried asking my local shops but they are slammed and I am shielding, so I am not sure what to do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
