Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking - Cross Forks?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Are there mid-priced cross forks out there? I'm aware of cheap ones (generic steel) and susper lux ones (Alpha-Q, etc.), but are there middle-o-the-road ones?
Who makes 'em?

Or your friendly local steel bike frame maker. See henryjames.com

Independent Fabrication makes some really nice steel cross forks. I see them on ebay sometimes for about $100 but I'm not sure how much they are new.

I've always liked the Kona Project II. It is fairly cheap, but a fairly good fork for the money. It is durable, tracks well, seems to absorb bumps well too. This may be a bit lower in spec than you were looking for, but thought I'd throw it in as a choice.

I have a Surly Cross-check fork on my Airborne. I don't know how it would be for cyclocross, but I like it a lot for commuting and extended road riding. Cheap, too, and lugged, so it's cool-looking.
You also have the Empella and Alan cross forks for $250-$300.. chucksbikes has a carbon one for $150.
