I rarely see a carbon fork on a steel frame and was wondering if there is an obvious reason for this? Is it just that riders who love steel are typically purists or is there an incompatibility issue as well?
More specifically, I want to know if a carbon fork would do well on a Surly Cross Check or a Bianchi Volpe, for example. And is there really greater "road dampening qualities with carbon over steel?
I welcome all opinions and experiences.... thanks!
