    Tri-cross carbon fork

    I am looking to get a Tri-cross comp for general riding, gravel, etc. I plan to change out the bars for some Salsa cowbells and would also like to put a carbon fork on it. Any suggestions. It would be a disc ready fork to fit the Axis 2 wheelset.
    Another option is a carbon fork and some Stan's Iron cross wheels!!
    If the path ahead looks dangerous ------- it probably is!

    I use the Niner RDO fork on my Air9 RDO rigid.
    The RDO has the 15mm maxle and makes for a very stiff front end. Ditching the 9mm QR makes all the difference.

    Weighs 649gr with axle.

    Use this for CX races. Will convert back to mtn bike duty by swapping tires.
