Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

Hey Guys, does anyone have recommendations for a good cross fork for disc brakes? Can't find too much online...

there's a ritchey fork that you see on a lot of custom cross bikes.

Lynskey uses these two on their disc crossers and sells them aftermarket. I'm a canti guy so haven't tried either.

Wound Ups have been available for a while, Enve has new one out(tapered), the whisky No. 7(several versions) is out and the 3T luteus was supposed to be released too.

All those fork have the IS mount which already disappeared from mtb forks and I guess will do on cx forks as soon as disk brakes will come into the market, since now there is nothing

I hope they end up making a non-tapered version too.

+1 on the non-tapered statement.

Just when you thought a decent full carbon disc fork was out there, you need a new frame to fit one... :|

No, the Enve is postmount (PM)

IS stands for International Standard and has the bolt holes 51mm apart and in the same plane as the wheel axle, like this

As most (hydraulic) brake calipers are PM fitting these days then it's simpler and lighter to have a PM fork.

sorry you are right, had totally brain fart there, mixing up that the enve PM is the way things are going rather than the way they have been.
