You mean the Advanced fork (Empella) is a "common CF -crap fork"? :?

Yep. I know Empella's quality. I will never buy "Advanced" fork. Just look nice steel forks in Colnago or Spot...For CF cx fork, look for Alpha Q or Reynolds...Kocmo for ti. Just my oppinion.

Another workhorse. Nasty,cheap and ugly. For nasty weather...altenative for cx. 500mm wide mtb bars and barends. I must get rid of this one when I have again real CX. Testing done for CF seat combo 4,5 hours in sunday,photo taken after it.

P.S. Notice Jukka Vastaranta fan club bottles!

Yes, he lived here like 1km away untill turned a pro. I know him for long time. He is master handling any bike and very nice boy, smiles always...had own bmx track on backyard when he was kid with his brother. I hear he bought just a house from Spain?

He is also Finnish national champ in 2004' in TT. Nice Rabobank TT-Colnago...I was like 18. in that year.

Now that our nationals are over I have some time to post some pics. That and I just figured out how to do it...
The pair of bikes below are my wifes, I'll post my bike tomorrow if I can.

The build for each bike is:

Frame: Hot Tubes custom steel (Columbus Life)
Fork: Alpah Q carbon
Spacers: generic carbon 30mm
Headset: Chris King
Bars: Profile (need to change for 2006!- likely to Oval)
Stem: Bontrager Race (also changing for 2006-maybe to WCS?)
Seat: Fizik Aliante Ti
Post: Thompson
Crank: FSA Carbon Compact Cross 46/36 w/Dura Ace alloy bolts (I like 5mm better than torx)
BB: FSA ISIS Ti, alloy fixing bolts
Chain: Shimano Dura Ace 9 speed
Pedals: Time, older model
Front Mech: Shimano Ultegra
Rear Mech: Shimano Dura Ace 10spd (getting alloy bolt kit for 2006)
Shifters: Shimano Dura Ace 9 speed
Brakes: Empella Froglegs w/ SRP ti fixing bolts, onza cable hangars
Cassette: Shimano Ultegra 9 speed 12-27 w/SRP alloy lockring
Front Wheel: Fir Rigel rim, Coda/Hugi hub, 32 hole, dt 1.8 spokes, 2x, alloy nipples, Dugast 30mm tubular, Salsa ti qr
Rear Wheel: Fir Rigel rim, Shimano 9 speed Dura Ace hub, 32 hole, dt 1.8 spokes, 3x, alloy nipples, Dugast 30mm tubular, Salsa ti qr

Extras: Gore sealed cables, Alloy aheadset bolt, Alloy cable hangar bolt, alloy bolts for cable stops, 3rd eye chain watcher

Unfortunately I don't have a weight yet- I need to get over to the shop and use a real scale. But it's pretty good, especially for a steel frame.
