I recently purchased a set of pave wheels from a Saxo-bank mechanic. He couldn't tell me if they had ridden the actual event but confirmed that they had seen some action at various cobbled spring classics.
I bought the wheels knowing that the huge rebranded Dugast tubulars probably wouldn't clear my Easton Ea90 sl fork. And just as expected, when i spun the wheel, it wouldn't go all the way round. Looking at the clearance with the front brake taken off it's clear that there isn't nearly enough space for even the slighest bit of dirt to pass through.
Due to this foreseen problem, i am now looking for a new fork. I tried the wheels on an old Edge fork and they cleared fine, so i suspect that the new Enve (previously named Edge) forks might get the job done. These are expensive however so i was wondering if there might be other and preferably less expensive options out there?
If one had similar wheels to mine and could point in the direction if a nice fork that would be great!
Thanks in advance
