Is there a nice road fork out there that allows for a tire in the 33-35mm range?

The new ENVE road disc fork has clearance for a 32, then their GRD version can take 38mm.
This fork is a special weight weenie unit that I source from the manufacturer - 350g. But it can only take a 28mm tyre, maybe a 30.


wicked looking bike !
im looking for a straight 1-1/8 caliber fork with clearance for 30mm strada bianchi tyres do you know if this manufacture has something that might suit the bill ?thanks, mick

Michel, the new ENVE road disc fork has clearance for tyres up to 32mm. http://enve.com/products/road-disc-fork/
It should serve you well.

I posted the frame being wrapped a while ago and here it is painted and assembled. It's dedicated to wireless shifting and has no redundant plugged cable stops.
This is the super-duty sprinter edition tube set and the frame weighs 1kg. The full bike is 6.8kg
I loved the way the orange looked against the grey background so I took a lot of photos. Hope you like them.

I'm a sucker for orange (love my "orange" Giro Empire SLX shoes) and this is ticking all the boxes:kick ass frame, kick ass color (the black on the forks, BB and rear just elevates it so much more for me), lack of clutter going with eTap.
Excellent job

Strength to strength.

I'm a few thousand miles in now on my Filament and I love it.

Looks superb, my next project will probably be a custom carbon in a couple of years and you're definitely top of the list.

Here's the latest build. The photos show the completed wrapping process and the finished frame ready for paint.
