Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19900416A1] A spring fork has a central spring device which is arranged in the control head (5) of a two-wheel frame. A longitudinally toothed handlebar stem or a handlebar stem which is configured in the form of a polygon (1) is guided in a correspondingly shaped bearing bushing (2) in such a way that it is resistant to twisting, said bearing bush (2) itself being twist-resistantly mounted in a guide tube (3) which is rotationally mounted in the control head (5). The bearing bush (2) is also configured in such a way that it is elastic and radially reducible so that the play can be adjusted.
