I was looking at the website, and they've got a carbon fork with disk brake mounts on the new Appalachian. Just curious to hear if anybody has their ear to the ground on this one.

Thanks,

Alex

P.S. - rode my first ever cross race on sunday. Has anybody ever ridden one and not gotten hooked?

It's a Litespeed branded carbon fork, produced by Advanced Composites (Taiwan). It may or may not be available under another brand name (Winwood or Profile maybe?) at a later date.

It's the same Winwood/Advanced model that Bianchi is using only with disc tabs.
