    White Brothers "Rock Solid" carbon rigid fork weighed

    445mm axle-to-crown. The steertube was 263mm uncut, if I recall correctly. The photo shows the fork weight uncut.

    I'm confused. I have a White BROTHERS "rock solid" fork but didn't realize that White Industries was making a fork (not trying to be sarcastic in the least). I can't remember how much mine weighs but I did not think it was 800+grams though. My crown looks different as well.

    I thought that might have been a mistake. None the less, I am pretty sure that my 445mm Rock Solid weighted in at about 780g before I cut it down. I suspect that it is closer to 760 or so at this point. So far so good, been on it for a year now and quite happy with it. I can say that it does flex a little (front to rear) bit but it still tracks fine and provides a nice ride (as far as rigid is concerned)

    The OP dis make a mistake calling it White Industries instead of White Brothers but the pic of the fork he posted is the brand new Rock Solid from White Brothers. It has a completely different crown design which looks stronger and thus most likely heavier than the previous design that 1SPD has.
