Hey guys, read a post in the for sale section last week, and bought a Ritchey WCS fork!

THIS THING IS SWEEEET! 311g!!! WITH 300mm steerer tube! :shock: I cut a 1cm piece off to see how much more weight would be saved. 5g per 10mm, and I estimate 100mm need to be trimmed (headtube is 150mm, plus 40mm for stem, and 10mm or less for headset and spacer) which would give a fork weight of apporximatly 260g! :shock: :frightened: :unbelievable: :scared: :twisted:

Oh yeah baby, I just save 100g over the stock CR1 fork and 30g over the Superlite with NO WEIGHT LIMIT!!!!! HAHAHA :twisted:

It's nice looking. Do you have any test data on it re: stiffness, etc?
No weight limit at all? hmmm.

thats a hot fork dude...I wonder when that came out, I don't recall seeing it in the 04 QBP catalog. Maybe they didn't carry them though. I'm seeing an upgrade in the future :D
