|Unless i am mistaken you posted something about a carbon steerer tube breaking just below the stem while you were riding. this was about a year ago i believe. i can't remember the cause of the breakage though, having just installed a full carbon fork (ec90) on my own bike i was concerned about having the same thing happen.|

|That was a very early 2000 model Bianchi EV2 with a 290 gram fork. The replacement under warranty was a little beefier. I think that was 2 years ago, also.
It's hanging in the office of the bike shop, by the way.

|thanks for responding, i'm going for my first ride on the fork in the morning and hopefully i will be able to gain full confidence in it.|

|I like the way Alpha Q is doing their carbon forks with the internal sleeve. Seems like a good idea.|| |
