one of the best reviewed forks i have come across is the one seven uses. essentially its two carbon tubes plugged into an aluminum crown (its beyond ugly )..

but it performs flawlessly and i think it might go a long way to show that these new 'shaped' forks really dont do anythng.

soon the bikes we are riding will look like cartoons.

coz you can use a much smaller wheel magnet and sensor as the fork are spokes are now much closer together...
With this design, last year's models are now inoperative. NMSpunout

Just like HetchinsKerry

The English manufacturer with the "curly" stays and forks. They were eye catching, and you always knew it was a Hetchins, even from a ways away or without decals. Absolutely no performance advantage, and probably a slight disadvantage - more material to accomplish the same task.
