|Any suggestions? I am thinking of maybe a Reynolds Ouzo Comp?

|That would have been my suggestion. I use one and it's fine.|

|At the cheap end, I think that the Kestrel EMS Pro is a good fork for the money. Not the lightest, but reasonably stiff, good handling, and nicely finished. I've also heard good things about the Columbus Carve, but while I've had a Kestrel fork I've never had the Columbus.
It's probably more money, but the Reynolds is likely a good bet. I have an Ouzo Pro on one bike and I like it pretty well--if the only difference is the steerer tube then the Comp is probably a very good value, albeit with a slight weight penalty.

|Totalcycling always has some good buys on forks, and it will arrive faster than one you order from a suppler here in the states.
I bought this fork, it arrived here in California in 2 days
2003 Look HSC3 Carbon Fork
Weight - 360g
Looks top fork for frames using standard headsets. Available in 1" and 1 1/8" steerer tube. A compromise between straight and curved forks the HSC3 is straighter at the front but strongly curved at the rear.
Full carbon steerer and crown.
Finished in shiny clear laquer.

|I bought one of those from Total Cycling a couple of months ago and it is an excellent fork. I think $192 was what I paid, too.
Another good thing about Total Cycling is I get my stuff in about 3-4 days. I live in N.Al.

|Look at the reviews on this site for the Kinesis. I bought a frame with one and it's comparable in quality at 1/3 the price of the Reynolds....|
