My Bianchi came with this fork disguised as their own all carbon fork. Don't wast your money. It's about as stiff as a wet noodle. If you weigh less than a buck twenty then it's probably okay. If not, get a fork that will not make you worry every time you ride.

Mine is collecting dust in my garage. I put on a Time Millenium from Supergo for $100.00. Totally changed the bike for the better.

There are a lot better forks out there for the money.

I installed this fork in November 2000. I was riding a Profile BRC with the aluminum steerer tube. I have to say that the AC fork is a much better ride than the BRC. I have not ridden a Time or Look fork to compare. I switched from a threaded steerer to the threadless all carbon to save weight and for ease of maintenance. I saved weight but not enough to justify the price. Having the threadless system justified it for me.

I am doing about the same thing. I currently am riding a BRC julie from 98/99, it is a steel threadless type. I want to raise the bar height so need to replace it and at he same time I am getting a lighter one. Have not heard much about the AC but profile offers a great pro deal. should be here by fri.
