Email Kevin at Webcyclery about the True Temper/Alpha Q fork. I went with the all-carbon fork. Installation was a snap, just make sure you measure twice and cut once.

FWIW, my fork weighed 536g uncut (350mm steerer). The required aluminum insert with star fangled nut weighed 34g. Total weight = 570g

I was tempted by the Wound-Up fork, but those legs just look too skinny for me...and I'm only 135lbs but I do ride some pretty technical singletrack. I've also read of WU owners complaining about their forks vibrating under heavy braking. I'm using V brakes with ceramic rims and pads and the fork has stayed straight and vibration-free.

It's a sweeeet fork, here are some pics:
