winwood muddy cyclocross fork: carbon vs steel(1 post)

winwood muddy cyclocross fork: carbon vs steelkeeshadog
Jan 17, 2003 7:26 PM
i'm building a bike. i'll use it exclusively as a road bike to cruise around on, even though i'm basing it on an interloc cyclocross cromoly frame. ritchey ocr rims with 40 mm continental avenue tires. i need a fork. i'm trying to decide between a steel cyclocross fork and a carbon cyclocross fork. i cant afford to pay the 300 bucks for some of the "better" and more expensive forks, but i've seen the winwood carbon cyclocross fork at a decent price. i've ridden on the kona project 2 cyclocross steel fork on my commuter bike and like it fine. its fairly light in weight and has a nice feel and ride. i'm tempted to stick with that, and buy another one for this second bike but i've thought seriously of paying out a bit more for the winwood.
i havent been able to find out anything about that fork. no reviews or comments or anything. i dont want to buy a piece of crap and have the thing fail on me or just fall apart in a couple of years.
is there anyone who knows anything about the winwood muddy cyclocross fork? or any other reasonably priced option?
