Does anyone have the Look HSC-1 fork? Is it threadless? If I'm on a budget and want to upgrade the fork on my bike, is this an okay fork to go with? parker international has them at an absolute steal.

Yup, got one of those. Its a 1" threadless model and it is more than worth the paltry $175 bucks I paid for it. It tracks great, stable and can take a pounding. Grab one before they are all gone!

Keep on keepin on...
Good fork but.......JS

I have one and I weigh 150lbs and I like the fork but it is a little flexy. If you weigh more than 180 and ride agressively I would look into something a little more robust.

what about the look hsc-2? or the look hsc? would these hold up a little better?

HSC3 is much stiffer than HSC 1 and in my opinion is a better fork. Go with the HSC3 you won't regret it.
what about this?S-U-B

I'm 170# and have the new HSC 4 fork on my KG381, dont notice any flex at all to this point, the 4 has a carbon steerer, does the 1 have a carbon steerer as well?
what about this?Clue

I'm looking at the 381i...curious what i get over the 381? Does the 1 1/8 head tube make a big impact and are you finding the front not "beefy" enough? also wondering if you looked at the 386?

thx much
