    Ritchey WCS Carbon rigid fork! 470g!!

    Just found this on the Ritchey web site. A full carbon mountain rigid fork, disc and rim brake compatible. Carbon steerer tube, carbon disc mount and carbon dropouts. Advertised weight is 470 grams uncut! Anyone tried or seen one? Anyone know A-C length, tire clearance, etc.? The weightweenies will be all over this one!

    470 grams is pretty damn light. Not sure how safe I would feel using that.

    Road and cross stuff

    I've heard good reports on the simalar road and cross forks. I still wouldn't trust it on my SS, but I weight 215 with a full camelback.....

    "We", the WWs, already were all over this one. Check Nino's posts. Nice fork if you want something that's that length (~410 mm a2c).

    Gotta wonder about carbon mtn forks that are approaching carbon ROAD fork weights, though.
