Carbon fork options.(4 posts)

Carbon fork options.StevieP

I am considering some carbon forks for my steel framed training bike. I currently have steel forks which are fairly heavy and cheap.

I dont want to spend a lot - about UK£90. For this money I have 3 options

Time Sprint
ITM Snyper
Dedacciai Black Force

Can anyone offer me any advice on these that would help me make a decision? I weigh 200lbs so I would really need an alloy or steel steerer to be on the safe side.

Thanks in advance

you may be able to also get a Reynolds Ouzo (not the pro) comp with Alloy steerer for this price. I assume you are running 1" on this bike. have one on a training bike and am 200+, very good fork. Otherwise I'd probably go with the Time.

No experience with those forks but I got a flyer in the mail from cambria bike outfitter for the Profile BRC for 99$ US. I have the BSC which is a carbon steerer and have been very happy with it. Very light and smooth. Check out
