    Carbon SS Fork........

    I'm looking for a carbon rigid fork for my SS. The only place I can find one is from Pace in the UK and I would rather get it stateside if possible. I would consider a used one if in good condition. It needs to be suspension corrected to a 80mm fork or somewhere close to it.

    I heard a rumor that Winwood was going to put one out. I just checked the website and didn't see anything. Anyone got any info on it?

    Gravity, not just a good idea, it's a law.
    The only one consistently and constantly applied, no exceptions.

    Winwood is a good idea, but you can get a pace in the States. John Atkins Cycles sell them pretty cheap and ship to the us. Figure $350 with shipping at the current rates. Winwood will no doubt be cheaper, but its not available yet!

    Winwood is making a carbon fork (not sure it's available yet) - check with www.bikeman.com

    Wound Up is also making a carbon MTB fork - made right here in the U-S of A. Think the price is about the same as the Pace. Not listed on their website, but I talked to them about it via email and it is available. Website: http://www.advancedcomposites.com/woundup.htm

    Winwood is making a carbon fibre fork for MTB's, called the Purist. It is threadless and is setup for canti or disk. The part number is FK1213 from the Quality catalog. It is out of stock right now. There is no weight, axle to crown, rake or steerer length. It appears that the steerer is aluminum.

    good luck
