Kinesis aluminum fork...?Ahimsa

Who rides one o' these, eh?

I'm thinking of replacing my steel stock Cannondale fork w/ one of them. Love that shiny chrome-like finish, but looks aren't everything of course. Is it much lighter? I've seen the manufacturers weight claims, but I want some opinions from the peanut gallery.

Is it stiff? How 'bout the rake? Steering? Effect on geometry?

Fess up folks.

Too much vibrations under braking, you can buy mine...

I'm looking at replacing mine with a Kelly, Hunter, or Steeleman straight blade steel.
Really not pleased with the Kinesis, but then I'm no rock star, so take it with a grain of salt.
