Title (EN) STEERING APPARATUS WITH FORWARD EXTENDED FORK LEGS
(FR) APPAREIL DE DIRECTION AVEC BRANCHES DE FOURCHE ÉTENDUES VERS L'AVANT
Abstract:
(EN) A steering apparatus with forward extended fork legs includes left and right fork legs that extend from a wheel axle all the way up to a handlebar. Top fork portions support a handlebar in a more forward location. A mid-fork portion of each fork leg is positioned in front of the steering column to provide more clearance room for the rider's knees, e top ends of the fork legs are positioned a forward distance in front of the vertical axis defined by the steering column. Each fork leg may be tilted forward with respect to the steering column and may also include a forward bend to direct portions of each fork leg towards the front.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil de direction avec des branches de fourche étendues vers l'avant, lequel appareil comprend des branches de fourche gauche et droite qui s'étendant tout du long à partir d'un axe jusqu'à un guidon. Des parties de fourche supérieures soutiennent un guidon dans un emplacement davantage vers l'avant. Une partie de fourche centrale de chaque branche de fourche est positionnée à l'avant de la colonne de direction de façon à procurer plus d'espace pour les genoux du cycliste, à savoir que les extrémités supérieures des branches de fourche sont positionnées à une certaine distance vers l'avant de l'axe vertical défini par la colonne de direction. Chaque branche de fourche peut être inclinée vers l'avant par rapport à la colonne de direction et peut également comprendre une courbure vers l'avant afin de diriger des parties de chaque branche de fourche vers l'avant.
