Hullo ww,

Looking for a top quality light weight gravel (or all road) disc fork; spec 1 1/8 (non tapered), QR, post mount, with mudguard eyelets, for my 9kg Croix de fer build.

Am loving the Ritchey WCS Carbon Cross fork - it really has been brilliant, on the lumpy stuff and tarmac - but it has no eyelets, which aint so good in the muck; https://eu.ritcheylogic.com/eu_en/bike/ ... -disc-fork. I've emailed and Insta'd Ritchey to ask if anything is in the pipeline, but no word back as yet.

What else is out there that's similar weight and spec, and also looks alright?

Not ENVE, as I'm not a fan of the shouty branding style.

Thanks muchly!
Andrew

Maybe Whisky has something? Non-tapered will be hard to find. My No 7 is, and has removeable eyelets, but is rim brake.

Thanks, yes had looked at Whisky. As a t-totaller (!) I'm less keen on the branding... There's a theme here huh!

Straight 1 1/8 is already seeming old hat, let alone hoping for low weight, large clearance *and* eyelets!

This comes really close, but it's flatmount. You could run a flat mount caliper upfront and post in the rear, but I realize that is not what you are wanting.

Or use an adapter. At 750g you could have a steel fork built instead though

Thanks both. Yes, it'd ideally be similar in weight, circa 450g.

Turns out Kinesis do/did a straight steerer carbon disc fork with eyelets that's non too heavy.

The 'Kinesis Tripster ATR Disc Carbon Fork'.

Thought it may be helpful to update the thread.

Cheers all.

The ATR fork is tapered but for information, yes it have eyelets, little bit less than 500g, PM disc and exist with QR or thru-axle.
The most similar one is the TRP CX (less than 450g) but tapered too.
Non tapered with eyelets will be hard to find, maybe the best way is to find a very great fork and had DIY mudguard mount for winter time.

Just buy a bag of stainless p-clips in a suitable size.

Thanks again, yes was looking at the older straigh steerer 1 1/8 version of the ATR tripster fork, which can still be bought new - although there aren't many of them around.
