Hi,

The steinbach bike fork weighs 580 gram :o but is known to snap. :?
The pace carbon fork is a very well know option and wieghs around 650/690 gram.
The Kinesis forks are around the 600 gram also.

But a friend of mine has a full carbon fork i believe it's from the brand Scorr. And that one is light! and comes i believe really good out of fatige tests. I believe that the weight of the fork was between 500 and 600 gram. I know its a large margin, but I don't know that much about this fork. :?

Does anybody knows more about these Scorr forks?

They have it on www.ingenieurtec.de for 125 euro and little weight, so it seems good for me.

I dun have a picture rite now but the rigid fork is made of alloy. steering tube is alloy too and quite nice too.

Have anyone ride steel rigid fork?its feel great. Im the only one use all rigid on XC race in Singapore. I beat 3 link racers in just one coner with steel rigid fork in the race. I giggle and didnt pay attention and i crash. 3 link racers pass me again like a wind. Maybe they see me like a ghost i think. :lol:
