Can anyone recommend a carbon fork (caliper brakes) with mudguard eyelets that will fit a 28m tyre? most of the ones i have looked at will only fit 25mm. I currently use a Kinesis DC07 but it needs replacing and I think I'd struggle to get a 28mm in there.

Thanks  1

One variant of the Whisky No.7 fork comes to mind. They say it will fit a 35 mm tire. It's got a straight 1-1/8" steerer, though - so you'll need a corresponding headset bottom bearing if your Kinesis fork had a tapered steerer.

I get 28mm tyres with guards in a Kinesis Tracer. Tapered steerer though.

I Was looking for similar forks as you,but after seeing price went for forks for 25mmtyres.

Probikekit had forks that would take 28 mm 

https://www.probikekit.co.uk/cycling-forks/kinesis-gf-ti-carbon-fork/112...  out of stock now but you may be able to shop around.

 

I went for these ones.25mm tyres are fine for me,and forks are really good.
