|Need help finding a good carbon fork under $200 (1 inch threadless 4.5 rake). I was looking at the Performance classic forte for $99, but was uncertain of its 'performance'.|

|How's the quality of the advanced compisit from chucks compared to Performance's Forte classic. Is it all the same stuff anyway (made in Taiwan)?|

|This is my first road bike. I bought the Advanced Carbon FK63 full carbon fork from chuck because the price was right.
The only fork I have to compare it to is the 5" travel Fox Vanilla on my FS rig. I will say that there is NO pedal induced bob on the road bike though!...and the roadie (18lbs) acclerates uphill like a raped ape compared to my 30lb+ FS bike.
I kinda' like this road thing all of a sudden:^)

|They have a Kestrel EMS Pro cro-mo steerer for $129 on clearance. Add to that the 20% code (CEM5) and you have a $104 sweet-a$$ fork! The only thing is, I don't know what the rake is. I'm guessing it's 43 but I could be wrong.|| |
