I can't find a weight on this fork. Would you keep it or upgrade to Reynolds Ouzo Pro?

I kept it. We are talking about the LiteTec right? It looked way nicer than the Reynolds Ouzo Pro with the Ti mesh and Litespeed written on the front of each blade.

Doubt there is any significant difference in weigth between the two of them.

I don't know what LS puts on their frames these days, but the "Look" fork that came with my wife's Tuscany (4-5 years ago) was pretty heavy. It had a steel steerer tube. I recently replaced it with a Reynolds Ouza Pro. Quite a bit lighter and she says it handles much better and is more comfortable.
LS has great customer service!katie1

Since I am bored at work today, I decided to give LS a ring and see if they had the answer to my question. A real live person answered and forwarded me to another live person. This kind gentleman didn't know so he took my name and number. He went and weighed one then called back in about 30 minutes. Very cool. Kudos LS!!

Answer: 345 g for the LSP carbon/carbon fork. (~400 g for Reynolds Ouzo Pro).

I didn't ask who makes it.
