Has anyone had any good or bad experiences with a Columbus Carve carbon fork they'd like to share? I've been offered a nice deal on one at my LBS and can't find as much info on this fork as the more common aftermarket forks.

i've had the carve fork on the 2001 unica frame as equiped. it does "carve" the descents, and seems smooth on the aluminum frame. i don't know the rake or leg length but the steer tube seems slightly thicker on the 1 1\8. very difficult to drive the star-fangled nut in. the thickness of steerer must add to the weight as when cut to length stem on aheadset, it's weight was over 550 as i recall. the handling characteristics negate the weight. looks very fine also.

Columbus makes great forks. I've got the muscle and love it. Don't know what all the fuss about Reynolds is all about.
