Been looking at the Leader forks either I802 or I806TR. Whats the main difference in these besides angle? I am looking for one that can withstand some abuse from the streets like riding through cobblestone and lumpy ends; not necessarily tricks. Also post pics of your bike with either forks please.

I have the I806TT, it's pretty awesome. Cheaper carbon forks usually have aluminum or chromoly steerer tubes, which add a ton of weight.
Moar pics if you click my sig.

OK, I have the I802 for sitting here right now. Just wondering what people use to cut their steerer tubes with? LBS recommended not to use a hacksaw to cut and to use a diamond bladed cutter to cut with.

Hacksaw is fine

Ah, as I suspected its fine since I do have some experience with fiberglass/epoxy work. LBS mech is just trying to make some more money off me I guess. Just wanted to see what others use.

Spend $10 at Home Depot and get a cheapo pipe cutter. It'll make a cleaner and straighter cut than the hacksaw!
