I found a good deal on their CX curved model, but can not find any info regarding the fork on the true temper website.
Was this fork discontinued for a reason?
And whom are riding them?
I really want a Ti fork but this carbon Alpha Q CX curved is a good deal.
Also what about the winwood, bianchi etc forks these are all the same and made in japan, correct?
I an not sold on carbon for cross, but willing to try it.

Have heard good things about the Winwood and I think it speaks to its quality if Bianchi is using it on its cross bikes.

Regarding the curved model, I think it probably got discontinued since none of the racers or consumers were interested in a curve fork as straightforks are all the rage for road and cross...

I certainly would trust True Temper over Winwood.

For a good(?) ti fork, check Sibex:

I guess Travis Brown was using one of their forks.
