I'm facing the reality that I may need to replace my current threadless steel chromed fork with a carbon model since the current (bought used with the frame) has been cut too short for me. I'm guessing this had originally been a threaded conversion gone bad. Too bad too, this is a pretty cool older Pinarello frame...
Anyway, this is a 1" steerer, and is measured at a 45mm rake. Wheel on, there's still a fair amount of space between tire and fork. Given this, would purchasing a replacement spec'd at 43mm work for me? or is this a big difference? Also, are there other factors I should be concerned with in determining the proper replacement fork? I'm aware that the steer length is important, I'm only considering 300mm in length so I avoid the problem that I have now.
