Is a bicycle with a single-sided fork reliable and safe ?
We may not be conscious of it. We have been travelling on vehicles that have wheels mounted on an axle that is supported only at one side.
Examples: Aeroplanes, Cars, Buses.
In the case of folding bikes, this single fork design results in :
- weight saving
- compact folding
- tires change without removing the wheel
Watch following demo on the benefits of a single-sided fork (also called Lefty fork).
