|I just got a new Colnago frame (see gallery), but the Flash fork I have is very heavy with steel barrel. I am thinking of using a Reynolds Ouzo Pro or a Look HSC-3 to save weight as well as money (The Colnago fork cost $300 but I paid $170 for the used Reynolds and $220 for the new LOOK HSC-3). My question is: would it be considered bad taste to have a Colnago frame with unmatching fork? Thanks for the input.|

|For starters it could throw off the handling. Make sure the rake is the same. |
Kind of foolish to even bother. If you think you'll notice the weight difference while riding you're fooling yourself. The Flash fork is a perfectly good fork.

|Plus, you gonna buy a *used* all carbon fork? What about durability and the possibility that said fork may have a sorrid past? |
It really comes down to what *you* want, not us faceless cyber geeks. if you like the looks or weight of a particular fork then go for it. It's your ride and you can have it any way you want.
