Thinking about building up a CX bike for this comming winter (summer here currently in Southern Hemesphere, 47C on Sat - ouch) and would like to know who makes the lightest CX fork with disk mounts.

TIA.

I've been reliably informed Wound Up is making their CX fork with an optional Disc mount.

WOW! That looks great! I was thinking about adding a rear disk brake to my bike, but I was just not sure how it would look, but if it looks half as good as the job you did I would be happy.

You could add a disk brake on your bike if you have disk tabs on your frame and fork. If it doesn't, you could purchase a adaptor for your frame and change your fork.
I do not advice this since it would make your bike heavier. The best thing you could do is purchase a new and lighter frame.

The Team X Disc Cross Fork is also available. It has a thoroughly tested standard 160mm universal disc brake mount to hold up to the most extreme braking forces.
