Thought I would do this poll here, to see if the results are different than on the other forum.

Sorry Spytech, I can't edit the poll to add the Storck.
I thought you would know the stiffness of the Storck....

I voted Sub-3 because I like it the most of all the forks listed that I have used (Muscle, Ouzo Comp and Pro, Look HSC3 and Time).

I have a Stiletto Light, but not assembled The Beast yet to comment :twisted:

That's a good experience record! Any thoughts on the delamination issues on the AlphaQ mentioned in the other forum (until that post I had only heard good things).
I voted WoundUp (all carbon) because it's what I ride, I find it very stiff/responsive/durable for a bigger rider, and I prefer straight blade.

My Mrs calls me my very own test review at work...little does she know..actually she knows it all, and just shrugs...I'm a lucky guy!

I have never seen any delamination problems, I use a 1" in one bike, and 1 1/8" in another and both have been good. The 1" dates back to their Bay Area days (1997), and neither uses that stupid glue in star nut, they just use decent wedges carefully positioned.

I thought only to start the poll as a comparative one to the other forum, then I added a few forks.
I can't list every fork!
The way it's going it looks very balanced as it is....
If enough people really think one fork is missing and superior, we could do a new poll in a few weeks with the added forks, because I cannot add items to the poll itself, sorry.

Oenk, do you have stiffness data on any of the other forks?

My Scapin came with an Advanced Carbon fork and I have liked it just fine. So when I went shopping for a fork for my new Dean Ti frame I looked at all the high-end names and then bought a new carbon/carbon Advanced Carbon for $125 on eBay. I might switch later. But only if I take the official Weight Weenie vow (my vow of cheapness stands first at the moment).
