nashbar threaded carbon fork vs. larger 700c tires, or are both possible?
I'm thinking about upgrading my old Cannondale tourer (ST400) to a threaded nashbar carbon fork. I'm riding a lot of rough pavement and gravel, and my general plan is to add a carbon fork and seatpost, as well as a (gently used) set of wide 700c rims and larger tires.
Nashbar is only willing to guarantee that the fork clearance is enough for 700x25mm tires, I was hoping to go to something closer to 35mm. One review says the axle to crown measurement of this fork is 370mm, it looks plenty wide enough. Would y'all recommend going with this fork, searching on fleabay, or sticking with the factory steel fork?
I'm currently running 27x1.25 tires at about 90psi.
