i wouldnt mind losing 5o grams off my fork. but a 300 gram fork sounds scary... i would like to get opinions from those who have it, what do they think, and how much they weight?

how stiff is it compared to the fork that comes with the giant tcr composite frameset?

I had an Alpha Q fork 298 gram. Loved it sadly new ride has integrated so had to let it go. Can really tell the difference in handling when you loose 80+ gram up front.

Ok I have two bikes.
1° Frame Scott CR1 (900gr) + Fork Easton EC90 Slx (289gr)
2° Frame Calfee Tetra Pro (1270gr) + Fork Alpha Q sub 3 (385gr)

The Easton EC90 Slx is stiffer than Alpha Q sub 3.
The Alpha Q isn't a good fork.
I think that I change it.

The claimed weight is 310 but the real il 385gr!!!!!!! :evil:

BYE
