Anyone know if this fork has a weight limit? I can't find any info on it, and considered how light it is, I wonder if it has any limits.

I had one last year on my CAAD10. I don't remember reading about any weight limit. Obviously there is one but I don't think it is any lower than the other forks they offer. And, yes it was just as stupid light as advertised!

Nice! That's good to know. I'm 90kg, and sometimes I miss out on these ultralight parts.

I actually want it for my CAAD10 as well. Do you happen to have any photos of it installed on yours? Would love to see what it looks like with the frame.

I'd also like to see some pictures of the CAAD 10 with the 3T rigida fork

I'll try and get a pic up this evening but it really didn't look good on my white CAAD, the stock fork looked much better.

Ok, thanks. Would be great to see it because my CAAD is white as well.

Thanks, appreciate you posting the photo. That doesn't look bad at all. I'm sold. Now I just need to find a place in the US that sells the fork.

too bad the dealer locator is broken but anyone selling Vittoria can likely order you the fork from 3T
