    It looks like Chinese carbon companies are not into straight 1 1/8" steerers

    Long story short, my brother moved to an absolutely flat place and I suggested a Rigid carbon fork for his Niner EMD (first gen 1 1/8" headtube), he don't feel like spending +350usd on the Niner fork and I decided to try a Chinese fork but apparently there's no straight steerer option only tapered.

    Is three any other than Hylix?

    Not sure if they are still available, but I got an Origin 8 rigid carbon fork with straight steerer tube a few years ago. I just did an internet search for it.
    Whining is not a strategy.

    Here's a couple. Don't know anything about the Carver. Have ridden about 70 miles on the Exotic, it's stiff and helps the bike go where you point it. i don't notice that the carbon gives a very compliant ride.
