are generic carbon forks any good?weezy

Hey, I'm building a road bike and want to get a threaded carbon fork. The steel fork that came with the frame weighs a ton and I'd like to save some weight without breaking the bank (college student). Has anyone out there used one of these nashbar or kinesis carbon forks? Are they any good? I am concerned with weight and ride quality so that is why I am not bothering with aluminum. Any thoughts you might have on this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Performance bike offers a threadless upgrade: Forte brand c/f fork (basically Performance brand, but i heard it was made by kinesis) plus a threadless head set and a stem, all forte brand for a pretty good price. you might wanna check it out. it will be better then your steel fork. hope this helps
