Hello, fellow weenie members, does someone has experience on this fork - Columbus Grammy 1.5" tapered?

I'm interested in the fork's weight, which is claimed 290~300g for an unpainted fork(why not listed painted weight? :noidea: ). The price from Planet-X is very attracting, if this fork is under 300g, I may want to try this Columbus offering to replace the Addict fork on my FM066 frame(I use adapter crown race, not a bad combination actually, besides the Addict fork looks really good. :lol: - ).

Thanks for any input!

Unpainted is 290g +-10g.
Lacquered is approx. 20g heavier - see [urn]http://forum.tour-magazin.de/showthread.php?277901-COLUMBUS-GRAMMY-CARBON-GABEL-tapered-neu-1-1-8-1-5-Zoll[/url]

Be careful buying from Planet-X, it's not always what it seems. Note they claim £299.00 RRP when official RRP is actually much lower, and they also state 350g +-10g.

Thanks for the link, just what I'm looking for! Should have searched all languages... :wink:

The actual weight is not very impressive, no lighter than my current fork(Addict LTD 313.5g uncut). But this fork seems to be a popular choice on many custom frames.

I bought from Planet-X before, for once they missed one item of my order, otherwise no problems.

I'm using a Grammy on my FM066SL. Weightwise not much of an improvement but a lot more comfortable than the Hong Fu fork.
