I ordered a custom Waltly ti road/gravel frame built around a 395mm ac fork. The list of things I want is making it a little more difficult than I originally thought to find a fork. I need a straight 1 1/8 steerer(getting very hard to find!) QR axle drop outs, fender eyelets, hole through crown, 50-55mm offset and I would love to have a mid blade low rider eyelets. I will be running Compass tires in 650b x 48c with 65mm fenders and Thunder Burts occasionally. The closest thing I have found is this but have not found it available anywhere and did not get response from mfg. http://www.evo.com.tw/style/frame/templ ... 2&id=99794
I would really like a low rider mount and will take the 45mm offset to get it. The other options for carbon seem to be SOMA all road, Whisky #7 and this http://m.ebay.com/itm/252709040923
I would prefer a lighter all carbon fork but these are 700 gramish and I can deal. For steel fork I can get it all with a nearlyy 3 lbs Surly, SOMA Wolverine, Kona P2 700c, or go custom steel and get it closer to 2lbs and spend as much as a high end carbon fork. Any options I am missing?

I have one of these forks on my commuter/cyclocross bike: http://www.treefortbikes.com/product/33 ... Cross.html

If I recall correctly, the weight was 640 grams uncut. Winwood appears to be out of the cycling business unfortunately so good luck finding one. I have nothing bad to say about the fork and have somewhere around 25,000 miles on mine running an Avid BB7 mechanical disc brake.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if your headtube had the following specs**, then you could? use a tapered-steerer fork.

For QR, I think of the fork used on the Curve Grovel v2; tapered-steerer, like the Spork. Though its 45mm offset and 400? a2c. One mid-fork mount, along with rack/fender mount at lower. Curve don't seem to sell the fork separately though.

**(Rodeo Spork; thru-axle: 2 mid-fork mounts on newest version) "It is still possible to use the Spork on a non-tapered head tube bike by using external bearing races such as those offered by Cane Creek (pictured) or the Chris King i7. Frames with non tapered head tubes using these external cups must have a 44mm internal diameter head tube."

pdxti, did you find a fork? I have pretty much the same requirements and I'm having a hard time finding a fork

i could not find what I needed so I went with the whisky #7. I wish it had eyelets mid blade and better ones at dropout but otherwise it's very light and works good. I also bought a kona steel fork ($50 shipped on eBay!)with a lot of eyelets. In the end I decided I would be riding 99% of the time without a rack and fenders so this fork would work, the rare other time when I might camp I will put the steel fork and rack on. The fixation, soma, spot and Marinoni are other good options but all have aluminum steerers.

If you go with a tapered ht here is a good list.
I've seen these online:

Fyxation Sparta:
https://www.fyxation.com/products/carbo ... nture-fork
Not very light (tapered carbon steerer coming later this year), clearance is 60mm, has all the attachment points

Niner RDO Gravel:
http://www.ninerbikes.com/rdogravelfork
Expensive, doesn't appear to have fender mounting hole at the crown

Colab Cross Fork:
https://www.cyclemonkey.com/forks/colab-cross-fork
Looks good, but no rack mounts, and not cheap

Rodeo Spork:
http://www.rodeo-labs.com/rodeospork
Might be the one

Whisky #9:
http://whiskyparts.co/catalog/forks
With or without tapered steerer, but no rack mounts

(Specialized Sequoia - not available except on bikes but ticks all the boxes)
