It has the standard alloy overdrive steerer. Would this be worth changing to save weight? I'm a fan on the bike. It's pretty fast and handles well

It's got obviously a carbon frame and forks so I'm a little bit confused on what it would change?

they're talking about a carbon frame, but the stock fork is carbon with alloy steerer tube.

So I would need new forks? What sort of weight saving would this give me?

Don't need it no, just ride it as it is, that is more than enough bike for most people!

Like SDP I think that is a underrated frame.
Or a underrated brand?
But I like your bike. Well done.
Need these spacers?
