I'm interested in an Edge 2.0 fork, but I'm a little concerned that I heard the manufacturing had been moved to China. Two main reasons being, one I've seen other companies relocate manufacturing with poor results, not China specific, just any relocation to save cost, and the fact Edge is keeping the 1.0 fork production in the US. If the new production facility was up to their standards then why not move the 1.0 fork manufacturing as well?

Anyone received a 2.0 fork manufactured in China and able to compare it to previous 2.0 forks?

Thank you.

Interesting. I heard that all Edge forks were being made in China. Are we sure the 1.0 are still made in the US? That said, I hope to be able to confirm the quality of the new Edge 1.5" tapered fork within the next couple of weeks. I'll report here for sure.

I could be wrong. Last I heard the 1.0 was made in the US. I know it says on Edge's website "American company committed to American design, engineering and manufacturing.". Not sure what they are still manufacturing in the US.

It's my understanding that the 1.0 are now and will continue to be made in the U.S. I have not verified this with them yet, but that was what was told to me that last time we spoke about it.

Anyone have the Edge 2.0 road fork on a traditional tubeset (titanium, steel) that isn't manipulated oversized and carbon? I want to know if the top crown area is flush or not. :evil:

@fibre-lyte, yes, your link was very helpful because the bike had a Columbus Spirit tubeset and Edge composites fork. Looks like the crown meets the CK BB just right.

This post sort of died off. MAdcow...Can we get a review of the 1.0 compared to the 2.0. Is there a weight limit for the 1.0? I'm trying to decide between the two and would like the 1.0 but I'm not sure its durable/stiff enough for my 75kg. Thanks

I could be wrong, but I think I read the 1.0 was actually stiffer than the 2.0, which provided better dampening and a nicer "ride", whatever that means. I don't recall where I saw that though and I don't know anything about durability. I can't imagine it being a problem at 75kg.

I ride a Lynskey R340 with a ENVE 2.0 fork. I want to exchange the Bontrager carbon stem (leads to a Bontrager Blade RXL handlebar) for a Van Nicholas Titanium stem. What's your opinion on this (re: fixtures Carbon-Titanium-Titanium)?
