Q. Fork rake, small frame, etc..?(2 posts)

Q. Fork rake, small frame, etc..?jjdbike

I bought Giant TCR frame that was a bit tight for me. Cool, but I think I might like a bit more(less?) fork rake. Can I buy a carbon fiber somewhat aero, light fork (dosen't need to be overly stiff, I'm a 150lb light weight) for a reasonable price? I do not believe that the stock 2002 TCR fork is very light. What might be a good replacement fork instead of the stock TCR fork?
not enough info...C-40

You didn't mention the frame size, head tube angle or rake of your current fork. Giant doens't even list the fork rake on their geometry charts.

It's impossible to provide assistance without this info.

When you say "a bit tight" what do you mean? Is the frame too small, ride harshly or does it steer too quickly?
