this bike was given to me as a gift and i have a couple questions about it i was hoping someone could answer. everything ive seen about the cf2 says the forks are FC-770 bonded carbonbonded carbon, but my forks say FC-440 monocoque carbon on them. anyone know the difference?
Looks to be an upgrade–it would also have a carbon steerer rather than an aluminum one. If you check the specs on Fuji’s website for the CF1, which is a much more expensive bike, it has that fork. As far as why that fork is superior, I’ll leave to someone else to explain.
(I’m predicting you’ll hear that it is lighter, stronger and possibly better at dampening road vibration, because that’s what is said about all CF upgrades.)
I think the steerer is the only difference. That’s quite a gift by the way. Very nice ride. As for the differences there is probably a little weight advantage to the full carbon, but I doubt there is much difference in the ride quality. The construction of the fork blades plays more of a part than that of the steerer, imo.
My father and I both have Specialized Transitions, his with a full carbon fork, mine with a carbon fork with alloy steerer. His felt a little lighter (till I put on the carbon Visions that my wife gave me for Christmas!) but the ride quality was the same.
