If you have not heard, they are having some problems with the Giant carbon forks cracking at the crown, they have a possible recall on all bikes sold and a hold on shipping any new bikes with the carbon forks. I found this out after trying to buy one at my LBS and from my brother who has a new TCR2 and was told not to ride it until Giant offered a resolution.

They carry a great selection of products, including some proprietary/Mike Burrows works, like the forks, seatposts, stems, etc.

Good luck,
Nigel

Hey guys,
Help me here. Why would anyone want a bigger fork anyway? Wont it make the bike stick up in the front? Maybe just a large fork might be OK, like those "chopper" bikes, but a GIANT fork! I think it'll look pretty silly!

Giant's a brand of bike, and their road forks are some of the wickedest things going. They're sold with Giant's TCR bikes, and are the most aerodynamic things out there. Very bladed carbon fiber with snazzy paint jobs to match the frames they're mated to. Very comfy to ride on, and they're pretty easy to look at as well.
