The disc fork is basically the same part that comes with the Wolverine. It uses a super tough Tange crown lug, which offers plenty of tire clearance and not a lick of shudder under heavy breaking. Sure, it's stiffer than the Classic Curve forks we've started speccing with a few of our other models, but come on, this is a loaded touring bike. Your tires should offer plenty of suspension, and if they don't we recommend you dispose of whatever Schwalbenental boat anchors you've got on there and try a pair of our new 42mm Shikoros or New Xpress 1.75ers.

Looking at it another way, if you are like us and we suspect that you are, you're probably going to change your bike around a few times. Sometimes you'll want to use those Phil Wood touring wheels you took off your old Paramount 2 years ago. Sometimes you're going to want hydraulic 1x11. Done and done. If that really bothers you, and you don't think you'll ever take your bike apart, you're in luck because we still have traditional Saga complete bikes in British Racing Green. You know what else? We've got more Wolverines coming soon too. That said, if you want a bomb proof touring frameset you can't do better than Thee Olde Saga. Seriously, I've been riding around on our demo bike and even with 42mm Supple Vitesse SLs there's nowhere I can't ride this thing.
