What riders and what is the consensus?
Moriati makes them, seems to be light weight. Pricing similiar to carbon forks?
I think I like the idea of titanium over carbon.
Jewelry yes. But do they make sense?
What ride quality could a ti fork offer?

I had a Morati on my MTB...SS_MB-7

I had a Morati disc-only fork on my MTB for about a year and a half. It is a really nice fork that is beautfully constructed. Nice and light (600g) with great steering precision. Surprisingly, the fork has just enough "give" to absorb trail shock, without being too flexy. Granted, I'm only 135lbs.

The only reason I removed it to install a SID World Cup was because my focus for '03 was a 24 hr solo race so I wanted to save my body from undue wear-n-tear. I will be re-installing the Morati in the fall/winter to save the SID from undue wear-n-tear during the cold, wet, muddy, snowy, icy, etc. winter months.

Here's a pic from the 2002 World Master's Championships at Bromont:

I only wonder how much flexing they would provide and would it be the right flex to give you vibration absorption or weird flexing when you stomp on it...

Travis Brown was running one last season and he's a pretty damn good rider.
