Looking at either replacing my Ultegra triple cranks or replacing my 2000 Trek OCLV ICON Air Rail fork. I am looking at carbon cranks, specifically either FSA or Profile to replace the Ultegra cranks. If I upgrade the ICON fork I am looking at Profile, Look, Easton and Reynolds. Either way, I would like to lighten and hopefully have a better performing replacement of the stock part. Also, the carbon components will compliment my OCLV with carbon components already on it. Thanks for you thoughts and feedback in advance.

Upgrade the fork if anything. Depending on bike size though you may change your bike's handling due to a change in fork rake.

Better yet, unless you already are riding light wheels you'd be much better off upgrading them. You'd certainly get more performance bang for the buck.
