Pompino vs Surly steel fork
I have a Surly Cross Check fork on my Pompino at the moment and it's a great fork, but I got it used and the previous owner had cut the steerer tube just long enough for me to put my stem on top of my headset. I have an extremely tall-angled stem, and i would like to raise my dropbars another inch or so still. so a need a new fork with more steerer tube.
The price difference between a new Cross Check fork and the Pompino fork is not very great. I mostly use this bike as a commuter with 32c road tires and full fenders, but I would like to put some gravel-grinder type tires on it, like 35c knobbies and ride some gravel roads, light singletrack, etc.
is there a major weight difference between the two forks? ride quality?
