I am thinking about getting a new 1" all carbon fork. Anyone used the Mizuno/Presenti Fiandre fork? How does it handle in corners at speed?

Currently have a pre True Temper Alpha Q Extralite (predecessor to sub3) which I like but I am planning to get a Calfee integrated Barstem and it will necessitate cutting down the steerer and unless I canfigure out how to modify the glued in insert so it will still work that's going to mean a new fork.

Up to 65kg its ok. Mine wifes fiandre is 300g and stiff enough for her (53kg).But for me (75kg) it is to weak.

Any other light 1" forks I should consider? Even though I weigh 60kg that's hardly a glowing review. :?

How much Kilometers do You drive per year? Races or recreation only?
I drive in my Year 2000 Giant TCR the Sintema KUOTA. 310g and it´s more comfortable and the lateral stiffness is much better than the original Giant Aerofork (carbon blades and alu steerer ). In 1" I would recommend the Kuota to you.
