... on a consistent basis, Profile still offers good bang for the buck... though with so many "new and improved" forks displacing last year's high enders... you can often find great forks from all makers at a discount.

Reynolds forks are great (in addition to the belowmentioned, got a couple of Pro Aeros), but pricey... I was lucky enuff to recently acquire a Comp for $70... now that's bang for your buck.

We abide.

Remain In Light.

I've never rode a carbon fork I didn't like. The only carbon forks I've ever heard any complains about where Looks and Time's, I heard from several people they where flexy. All of these where earlier models by those companies.Of the three brands I've owned, the Kestrel and the Reynold's rates on top.

Ill weigh in one more time for the Ouzo pro. Safe, absorbs shock very well, light(not ultra light)not flexy in a sprint, reasonably priced if on sale. I paid 260 from my frame builder.
