    Carbon fork ??

    I recently picked up the Shimano Pro Carbon fork, it looks like a lot of other brands ie. White Bros, Xotic, On One, etc

    What is the lifespan of these forks? Anyone broken one?

    It is the same as a lot of carbon rigids (not sure if it is the same as the on ones though). My Nukeproofs are the same with different stickers.
    I too would be interested if anyone has broken these as I have broken a Pace RC31 carbon rigid fork in the past. The Pace are a different design to these though - especially around where the legs connect into the crown (where mine broke).

    The only failure I've ever heard or seen with carbon forks is steerer tube separation on one fork. Can't remember the brand.

    Ride and forget.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    I'm also looking at these carbon 29er forks carefully, though haven't found that many reviews. You should have posted this in the 29 forum.

    I've been riding Bontrager Carbon Switchblade fork since 2006 with no problems. Still feels great.
