If I were you I would try the Pace they might
work out slightly cheaper (I know I contradicted myself!!) than the Spicer (even with the exchange rate) and you also get the added cool factor of nobody on your block having them or anyone in your neighbourhood hearing of them for that matter!
Plus the new '04 models are lighter and 20mm longer.
Here's the spec from Pace -
RC31 XC Unique ultralight carbon rigid fork (now 20mm longer)
Hollowform high modulus composite construction. High strength uni-directional carbon fibre provides maximum durability. Layers orientated to provide a tuned amount of axial resilience without affecting strength. V-brake mounting kit available
Magnesium safety dropouts ISO std disc mount.
Hollowform cold-forged, heat-treated and cnc machined crown
7075T6 Hollowform steerer for maximum strength and fatigue resistance
Tested and certificated to stringent Din 79100 standards
Handbuilt quality and reliability
Wt; 645g* Len; 440mm SRP; £169 Part No; SF31HF
*Note; All weights given with 160mm steerer tube
The overall ride with them is pretty plush for a rigid fork more forgiving than you'd imagine!
