So, Heavymetal45 you do understand people could say it like this, "Just standing around holding a 40."

 right. im putting this straight. if you ask anyone at a bike shop, then they say forks reffering to one SET of forks. it is one set, just like you say sunglasses. you dont say ''hey guys, check out my new sunglass'' do you? no. ask any proffesional rider. its forks. get it right.
  • + 2
 pong101 is right... the example with the sunglasses was very clear.... whoever negged him probably had nothing to answer back so just went "well ye..no but...aww hell i'm still neg proping you"... by the way this does look kinda photoshopped....still an amazing idea though....

 you guys are all blind.....all i see is a 10....mmmmmmm cougar
  • + 21
 So pong - would you say to your friend "So I just got a new forks?" No, you would say "I got a new FORK"

Your example is stupid since sunglasses only exists in the plural form. Fork on the other hand, exists in both plural and singular... so why the hell would you use "forks" when there is obviously only one. SET of forks? No, you dont have a set of forks! You kids are unbelievable.

Bicycle fork
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"A bicycle fork is the portion of a bicycle that holds the front wheel and allows the rider to steer and balance the bicycle."

^^Notice it doesn't say, "a SET OF BICYCLE FORKS is the portion that holds ...."

Anyone who thinks it's forks should hit up grade three again.

Next up for debate: Is it a pair of pants, or is it just pant?
(Obviously this is a joke, it's like the sunglasses thing. It only exists in plural form... so please don't actually discuss it)

 PONG... I have worked in 3 bike shops, currently still working in one... YOURFULLOFSHIT. It's a fork. There is ONE FORK which consists of both stanchions, lowers, steer tube and crown...

  • + 5
 I want to all the "FORKS" guys to understand something: IT IS f*ckING FORK, even in spanish is FORK (horquilla -- Reads: or-kee-ya) NOT FORKS (horquillas -- Reads: or-kee-yas) so can you accept that the correct term for the par that holds your front wheel is actualy in singular and that is not a SET unlike wheels, cogs, tubes, tires, spokes, hubs, rims, levers, brakes shifters or anithing that you can imagine that comes in the presentation of SET. Thanks too all! Salute

 ^^ This guy doesn't even speak English as a first language and even he knows the correct term. How hard is it to get it in your head guys? There is only one fork on your bike. Read my previous post, there is absolutely no argument you can say to that without looking like an idiot.

Case closed.

 or why dont we just say it can be used in both terms? because its alright to say fork, or forks, as you can say to your friend either ''i got a new fork'' or ''i got some new forks'' right? ive heard both, as i do work part time in a bike shop. maybe its different in america to england? because everyone from england is arguing forks and everyone from america is arguing fork, so it must be that? case closed...

 reading this i said fork so many times (and forks) that it doesnt even sound like a real world coming out of my mouth anymore
  • - 2
 well why can't it be a pair of forks too?? like the pair of jeans or sunglasses we mentioned above??? yeah they only exist in plural form but seriously what it the f*ckin difference with the fork thing??? in all three cases we are reffering to ONE object....just cuz you don't say it as much it doesn't mean that its wrong....i say forks more often so now fork sounds wrong to me.... and i can just support my oppinion by saying it exists in plural form too as DEMO-250 continiously said to support his... i don't think either of them is wrong and we should all just accept that.... so i say we close this stupid argument cuz it just not leading anywhere nobody is gonna admit his mistake....

 oh and btw in Greek we say (πιρουνι - pirouni) which is fork in singular form.... but still i wouldn't compare Greek to English cuz that would be very VERY stupid and would have no meaning at all... and that also goes for comparing spanish to english my friend downhiller900sl....

 @Alekoubas

Your argument is about as bad as the sunglasses one. Actually it is probably worse... the sunglasses one actually made some sense, all you did was contradict yourself. I don't feel like pointing out all the flaws in what you are saying, but I will so that perhaps you will gain a better grasp of the English language.

"well why can't it be a pair of forks too??" - It can, no one is saying that it can't. It just simply isn't in this case. If she was holding 2 Fox 40s, then yes, it would be a PAIR of them.

"in all three cases we are reffering to ONE object" ..... "i can just support my oppinion by saying it exists in plural form too" - Uhm... really? How is FORKS referring to one object? If that was the case, the word fork would not exist and it would be another "sunglasses" case. Perhaps you don't realize the meaning behind plural words. They are used to represent more than one of something. Words like sunglasses, which we already talked about, exist in one form only, which effectively forces the use of it for both singular and plural meanings. But since FORK has a separate word for the plural meaning, that tells us that it must only be used when we have more than one.
  • + 9
 everyone shut up!!!!!! its just a freakin fork
  • + 1
 alright this does make more sense to be honest.... but also another thing just so i can get a better "grasp" of the english language.... How is PANTS or even Trousers reffering to one object??? why can't it be the same with forks??? also im not saying that fork is a wrong way to describe the object.... grammatically it does sound more correct.... and since as you said there is a separate word for the plural meaning, i don't think there's any doubt that saying fork is the correct way....but why the hell is pants any different??? seriously i totally get your point but i just think its completely a matter of speech... the sunglasses example is actually worse because if you think about it you are reffering to the lenses, which do come in pairs....so using it in plural and not in singular form makes more sense...on the other hand i insist that forks is the same case as pants, with the difference that in the "fork-forks" case we can reffer to one object both in singular (fork) or in plural (set of forks) form.... dude this is never ending im telling you....
  • + 4
 True, I wish I never commented on it to begin with. Every time I go on pinkbike now I see new comments in my dashboard, lol.

But as for your pants question: The reason that pants is referring to one object is because there is no way to say it as a singular without actually having to use the plural form of the word. You can't say that "I'm wearing pant" or "I just bought new PANT." You use the plural to describe both singular and plural in this case. The only way that "pant" becomes a usable word is if you are talking about a leg of your pants. You could then say "I went biking and ripped my pant leg." Although I think the correct way of saying it is still supposed to be "I ripped the leg of my pants."

"i don't think there's any doubt that saying fork is the correct way....but why the hell is pants any different???" - I honestly have no idea why this is the case. It's the silly things like this that make English so hard to master as a second language. We have a lot of stupid rules. This whole argument can, and should be blamed on the fact that the English language is ridiculous.

In conclusion: The grammatically correct way to refer to a single fork is indeed "fork," but due to the complex nature of the English language, we have many, MANY variances in the way we talk and the way we describe things. So if you want to call it forks, then go ahead, we all know what you mean by it... but some of us, (me included) like to make a big deal out of nothing because we have nothing better to do when we aren't out on the bike.

 "FORKS" Can be used when either talking in general or when there is more than one.

  • + 11
 right sumone needs to end this argument Fork = As a piece of cutlery or kitchenware, a fork is a tool consisting of a handle with several narrow tines (at least three or four, but never just two as in the photograph) on one end. The fork, as an eating utensil, has been a feature primarily of the West, whereas in East Asia chopsticks have been more prevalent. Today, forks are increasingly available throughout East Asia. The utensil (usually metal) is used to lift food to the mouth or to hold food in place while cooking or cutting it. Food can be lifted either by spearing it on the tines, or by holding it on top of the tines, which are often curved slightly. For this latter function, in the American style of fork etiquette, the fork is held with tines curving up; however, in continental style, the fork is held with the tines curving down.

your all wrong

"my forks is f*cked up "and my fork are f*cked up" but the first and second examples are grammicaly correct, and it would be 40's but thats another story, ex.

 makonastinky are you stupid.. of course i know that this stupid argument is about forks or fork that you ride with.. But i thought that seen as everyone else is being immature by arguing about it like kids then why not post a comment like that... All i did was type Fork into wikipedia and thats what they came up with.. Also isnt it down to the person to call it watever they want.. Instead of saying ' oh im gonna call it fork today because the guy on pinkbike said that thats how i should say it.. hmmm
  • + 4
 rossspecialized It's not supposed to let people call things what ever they want due to the fact that things are called only one way (to be exact, the CORRECT one) and that is what has been discussed in this, lets say, thread that was generated. I stand for the term FORK, I have my reasons and I think that is the correct way to refer to that part.

The other point I want to argue with you is that this is not a "kids fight", some may say comments that are stupid, nonsense, dont have any knowledge to support them or are immature, but the core of the discussion is my first statement in this post, referring to things right.

By thinking the way you do (let people cant call things what ever they want) is when the language being Spanish (my native), English, Greek or whatever are being distorted and corrupted, and then you see kids in the forums writing things like "youre bike" instead of "your bike" or "the bike is their" instead of "the bike is there", and I can keep going on and on, but you can get the point.

By the way I'm not flaming you or anyone, just want to state that this, to me, is not an immature discussion at all, immature is to say things wrong only because it sounds "right to me".

To support my statement I searched Wikipedia and found this:

Bicycle fork
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A bicycle fork is the portion of a bicycle that holds the front wheel and allows the rider to steer and balance the bicycle. A fork consists of two fork ends which hold the front wheel axle, two blades which join at a fork crown, and a steerer or steering tube to which the handlebars attach (via a stem) allowing the user to steer the bicycle. The steerer of the fork interfaces with the frame via a set of bearings known as a headset mounted in the head tube.

 Honestly, just STFU; you are making yourself look like a moron. I already explained in my previous post that pants (trousers / shorts) is used as singular and plural because it doesn't have a separate singular variation. Fork on the other hand, which is singular, has it's own separate word for the plural version; so why the f*ck would we use "forks" (the plural version) to represent SINGULAR when there is obviously a singular variation just waiting to be used?

I'll put this into English that even moongose can understand: It not called forks, it actually called fork.

  • - 2
 Demo 250 I have no idea what grade 8 English is; because in England we do grades in music and not subjects. But anyway i'm guessing that if you had done English to a high-ish level you would probably have studied dialects/idiolect. So as you noticed, "tbh" "nah its defo" both are not standard English. However they are idiolect.

Whereas (as i said previously) "it called fork, fork go on bike, you ride bike" just isn't any where near to being right.

Also, I consulted the internet: and you are right that it is fork due to the fact that it is a single entity. However I probably will continue to call them forks because thats what I know them as and its what everyone I know calls them.

 In Canada, grades are used to refer to how many years of public school you have completed. Kindergarten - Grade 12.

For the second time, you have failed to comprehend my "incorrect English" as a joke. I wrote it that way in reference to your incorrect use of the word "forks." I basically implied, that since you like to use other words incorrectly, you may as well just type like that.

Anyways, it seems we've come to an agreement.

 Colin994, I had do idea what a doylem was either so i had a quick loooook on the ole urban dictionary. Apparently a "doylem" is a"Geordie word meaning a complete and utter idiot". Doesn't really sound like much of an insult to me.

 Why would i want to offend someone over the internet though, so that actually makes you a doylem.And hows a fucking ass whipe an insult, ive had better insults told me from a teacher, and retarded is the shittest of shit comebacks, and yes if i wanted my comeback i would have wiped it off of your mum's flaps.
  • + 4
 yer however "ass wipe" and "retard" are generally known insults. Whereas you used doylem which is from the scummy northeastern corner of England. And is only known by people from that general area. btw a doylem sounds like the kind of thing a teacher would use as an insult.

 Hmmn London or Newcastle? I think i'd pick London everyday of the week. Also I don't actually live in London, so yer good one. And the reason you would rather live in Pakistan is because you live in Newcastle So anywhere is a step up from that. Oh yer and not everything is a comeback, before this comment i was simply stating a fairly obvious point. But since being a geordie you probably prefer to talk in terms of fights or arguments.

 im pretty sure its 'forks' not 'fork'. If i went into a bike shop and said- "can you fix these fork?" makes no scence.
  • + 5
 The lack of common sense in this discussion is worrying.

"These" is always referring to a plural object, so of course it doesn't sound right to use it with a singular object.

"Fork" is a singular variation, so you would need to use a word that properly refers to a singular object.
ex. "Fix my fork." - "Fix this fork." - "Fix that fork."

 pierpoint33...you're not understanding

how many legs legs does a fork have? a fork has 2 legs.

Say you're driving, and all of a sudden theres a fork in the road?

ugh why am I even wasting my time...this is my official resigning from this argument. It's so pointless

 LOL who gives a fuck, over half the argument is the 'fork' guys just all commenting with no one arguing back, and they get madder and madder hahahahah. im pretty sure colin994 is crying over the debate, this is just toooo funny
  • + 2
 rippin-norco, unfortunately i thought this was over, clearly i was wrong. I dont think that the lefty fork can actually be a fork since it only has one leg, and every fork i have ever seen has at least two: argyle's, pitch forks, forks you eat off. The fork with only one leg is commonly known as a knife

 yeah its short but tough. really fun though and its only open for races. id assume they were fine considering he made it down in one piece haha
  • + 1
 well there marz 888 so id expect them to hold up, but he did brake his frame some time after like a month ago, the shock saddle i think is what its called, the black triangle like piece that conects to the bottom of the rear shock, yeh in the gravity east race he crashed in the beggining and fucked up his brake lever to his rear brake so he got last in that race becuase he took the safe way and walked down the steep parts..

just dont get your hopes up

 well, ive got a simpler answer moongose, everyone that disagrees with saying it the other way, should, SHUT THE FUCK UP! not aimed twards you, unless you think it can only be said one way wich is fucking retarded, ifyou think about it.. you cant only say car, in some cases you have to say cars.. almost any word is like that, unless its a word like deer , see there are many deer, and , there is a deer, there are many forks, and, there is a fork....

  • + 1
 I have no idea what you meant there, but we know them as 5er bags, 10er bags, 20bags, half ounce and that, i dont do that stuff myself but some friends do, its funny to watch people when they are stoned i reckon.
  • + 3
 it's even funnier to be stoned watching people being stoned haha
  • + 1
 Never been stoned, or never even smoked, dont really fancy it but i its funny
  • + 2
 yeh 5 bag is a gram of weed a cigarello it a cigar, they sell them as one for 99 cents, so if u got $6.05 cents u buy a gram for $5 then a cigarello for 99 cents plus tax so $1.05, then u break the cigar gut it then roll it with the weed then you got a blunt,so for only six dollars and five cents you could get high as hell.. @thecheeseychizter, i had to laugh at that one.. everything is even funnier when ur baked... but the experience of being high s just great, its like being in a dream where you are playing a video game of ur life, pierpoint, if ur friends do it, im just sayin maybe ushould try it once, its not addicting so unless everythign goes good and u liked it , (like my first time) you wont be really wanting to do it again..

 yeh i get the dank bud sometime, usually when i got lots to spend , but since i dont have any sort of steady income, i just get mids , bcuz its more for ur money , cuz if its weed, ur gonna get high , then ur gonna come off it sooner or later, and i always like to have more waiting , like if i bought $20 a gram thats one blunt and thats it, or like 2 bowls, but if i get 4 grams thats a blunt, 1 bowl when i buz out a lil , another bowl for when i buz out a lil again(thats roughly 7 hours of bing high), then i can do the same tomorrow.. but like im saying , the weed here is probably cheaper,

 @methdog hahahah, and its forks, fork is a tool for eating, forkS are either multiple forks used for eatingm, or a bike part which holds the front rim, you will NEVER her someone say "i need new fork" or "i bent my fork" or "my fork snapped" or "i love my fork" to an extent it sounds okay, but its not the proper way to say it
  • + 1
 HOLY f*ck YOU GUYS ITS FORK...SINGULAR this is straight from fox's website---"The new FIT RC2 damper lowers un-sprung weight, allowing the fork to react quicker for better steering control." you see that??? ITS f*ckING FORK GIVE IT UP YOU GUYS.

 @demo-250 the reason you dont hear someone say "i got a new forks" is because you would say "i got new forks"
neither one of them sounds right it just sounds retarded, both "i got a new forks" and "i got a new fork" dont sound right. take grammar again!!

 larryssman7, when you get a bike that isn't a schwinn come join this argument. It's not called a, 'shock' because thats what us downhillers have for rear travel, and even then the word isn't used. And, whats wrong with weed? Scientifically proved, by the government, that it actually helps cure cancer.

 BLIPDH believe it or not it's been proven that the cannabinoids found in marijuana are not only a natural part of our bodies chemistry, but they are also able to destroy the mitochondria in cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells alone.

 @rippingnorco, from what i see from MY "profile check to see who we're dealing with" is that i can jump my schwinn better than you can on your spiffy dirtjumper, also i can table better than your "2seasons old photo" and can throw whips A LOT farther than your step up pic, and also, dont go insulting my bike, its seen more than you ever will. also id be very much obliged if you offered to give me a new bike so that i could "join this argument". not all of us can afford 2011 tr250s with a fox FORK, rich boy. also from one of your comments above you said: "making people mad online is fun", so i would place you with your "i think pinbike is full of immature, like minded trolls". and for the record, its "FORK"
  • + 0
 And you're mad. I don't really want to get into this argument again, so yes. I'm rich, i'm a terrible biker, i'm immature, you're the better human being here, and you're also probably far better at whips then I will ever be. Happy?

 Bloody hell. I just spent about 15 mins reading all these petty arguments about 'fork' or 'forks', 'pant' or 'pants' and 'sunglass' or 'sunglasses'. When it looked like it was finally about to end some arse went and posted another comment or copied and pasted something off wiki. At the end of the day it doesnt matter whether you choose to say 'Got a new fox 40' or 'Got my new fox 40's'. It still conveys the exact same message with absoulutely no confusion or misunderstanding. Its just how people say it, in the same way i say trousers but you americans say pants (this is relevant btw as someone was using pant vs. pants in their argument). Only the complete freaks among us feel the need to analyse the language and grammar on what is in the first place a casual and informal website. Now please, STOP this pathetic argument its doing my head in and i think its safe to say i speak on behalf of everyone who has had to endure reading all the comments. Stop. End off. Non grammar comments below please

 now coming from a motorcycle shop, if the unit as a whole is a fork, how can you tell the shop guys that the left fork seal needs replaced. same components as the bicycle set up. two stanchions... never mind. after looking at the picture again, the fork she is holding is a solid piece. motorcycle forks aren't connected to each other. you can replace the left fork, or the right fork. with these you would have to replace the entire unit, the 'fork' as a whole. the point i was going to make is invalid, and typing this out has clarified my understanding as to why it is referred to as a 'fork' instead of 'forks'. funny read though. can't believe it went on this long...
  • + 1
 Im pretty sutr in this case only, it would be considered Fox 40's. Not that I dont get the whole plural snd singular argument. but when you refer to fox's 40 fork, you are referring to the size of the stanchions. Which there are two of which would make it either Fox's 40 fork or a nice set of 40's refering to the two stanchions. There is no such thing as "forks" the fork is one component which makes it singular. Onve again I think this only works with 40's and wont work the same with the boxxer...

 this string of comments is hilarious, im dyslexic so im a gonner in grammer terms so dont get all up in my flow bout grammer.... but ive always called em forks, and a fork when i feel like it come to think of it. all u flipping noobs need to chill the flip out with whether they're forks or a fork who gives a monkeys nip what gary to left calls it. sorry if im a bit late in my entry but i wanted to get involved in all this bikering as ive got nothing else to do right now. now, if u think one way is correct over another ur a god damn noob

 you do not have the proper reasoning. it is a given fact that each fork has 2 stanctions, as well 2 lowers to house said stanctions. however, this does not make the fork a 'pair'. it is not a pair. and never will be. i dont car what you think, but you are so incredibly wrong it makes me sick. its a fork. it is one singular fork. that happens to have 2 seperate stanctions. the survey says. makonastynky is weetaaawwded
