    Java carbon forks?

    Has anyone heard of these, or have any experience with them?

    They seem like a fantastic deal if they are any good

    never used one, I am sure it works OK, but I would not buy it without first checkng the AC and rake to make sure it suits your frame. Also 700+gms isn't that light for a carbon fork but you'd probably need a carbon steerer to get lower. I got a 26er carbon chinese fork that is still going strong for $130 a while ago...500gm...26er geo to suit a drop bar 29er setup. Never sees harsh duty.

    Just saw the AC of 430...unlikely that will fit a 29er frame unless it is not sus corrected.

    How long have you had it?

    I'm OK with an aluminum steerer, I'd actually prefer the durability anyway.

    I'm just concerned because I've never heard of Java before and I don't really know if I want to trust the well-being of my face to a no name company.

    about 1-2 years I think, but it doesn't get used a great deal. Most of my riding is on a Ti fork and frame. Can't say much as I haven;t used the Java, but looks like made by Mosso? They may have some reviews around on their alu forks.
