Don't know if this is a good deal or not but I thought I would pass on the info. They say retail is $370.

I'm running off (poor) memory, but isn't it for 1" only?

Not a bad deal really although they only have the 1" size. From what I've read, the HSC2 is best utilized by lighter riders due to its compliant nature.

Performance also has some killer combo deals on stems/handlebars: ITM Millennium for $110, Ritchey Pro $100 (with new 2002 Pro stem).

I've never paid that much myself. Maybe I should have said, considering the individual prices for these parts, the combo is quite a bit lower.

A quick review on the HSC2. About as light as it gets for forks. I almost thought the box was empty when I got mine. The combination of light weight and carbon steerer tube produce an extremely flexy fork. Not confidence inspiring on the down hills and not very efficient on the climbs.

In retrospect, I wish I had gotten an Ouzo Pro, although you won't find those for $199!

Some guy in the classified section is selling new Ouzo Pro's for $235 shipped, at least he quoted me that price. I'm fighting the urge.

This place has the best Ouzo Pro prices I've seen. And they're brand new, so it takes that ebay "leap of faith" out of the question.

I ordered a Columbus Carve from SDEALS since I was afraid a carbon steerer would be too flexy (58 cm ALU frame, I weigh 195) They didn't have the Carve so Steve sent me a Muscle instead which I assume is about equal to the Ouzo Pro for the same $134. This fork is truly a work of art! Hope it is strong enough.
