I'm interested in this fork, but I can't find any online stores that carry it. Anybody know where I can find it?

Alpha Q sells direct to the consumer not through shops.

Bulltek (www.bullteksports.com) has them and Chicago Bike (www.cbike.com) used to stock them. You could e-mail Chicago bike to see if they still have some sitting around. But, if you buy from either one of these places you will miss being able to talk with Dr. Lee, the guy that invented the thing. He is very helpfull.

Actually, as I've been told, AME was/is being sold to Tru-temper (Golf Clubs, etc.) and the existing facility is being shuttered. Manufacturing will be done in another site. Mr. Lee will not be involved with the new company...

I was trying to get info on the "new" all carbon 'cross fork and found out quite by accident. Now have a new IF steel fork in lieu...

I suggest caution until things work themselves out.

Also saw Schwab cycles carries a couple models. The have an on-line store and print catalog as well. Nice high end stuff. (schwabcycles.com) I like my Alpha Q, but as guy above mentioned, perhaps use caution with the sale of the company.
