With the forks also being made from 6061 alloy steerer and using carbon fibre straight bladed legs, this allows them to bring down the weight making sure that the bike is not only strong but light. Carbon Bladed Fork with Alloy Steerer So the Plug is supported at the front end with a Carbon bladed fork with an Alloy steerer. The bladed legs absorb the vibration off the road giving that little more comfort and the Alloy steerer gives you that little extra strength at the front end but still keeping the weight down. Shimano Claris 8 Speed Drivetrain The Shimano Claris 8 speed drivetrain is the perfect combination of performance and durability, ensuring reliable and smooth shifting whatever the terrain. The Finishing Kit Finishing kit is by charge throughout topped of with the award winning Spoon saddle.
