Inexpensive Carbon Forks(1 post)

I am trying to lighten my bike. I currently have a threaded carbon fork with a steel steer tube. I am thinking about converting to threadless with either an alloy or carbon steer tube to save weight. I weigh about 180lbs. Should I worry about carbon steer tubes being too flexy? Would an alloy steer feel stiffer at the handlebar?

I see a good price on a Profile SC ($85.00) with an alloy steer tube. Any feelings on this fork? I would welcome suggestions on any other inexpensive 1" steer tube forks.
