I REALLY want a speedy road bike, but I fear for those silly carbon fiber forks they are putting on all of them these days. At 380, obviously I'm harder on a bike than most are, and I ride 'em like I stole 'em.
I *was* looking at a singlespeed, but after a test ride it became painfully obvious that I need to ditch some more pounds before I can effectively push one . Add to that a pre-disposition to bad knees, and yeah, as sexy as they may be it's just not something I can reasonably do.
Anyway, looking at anything road-oriented today it seems that the carbon forks are standard. Well, anything that looks speedy (I like to go faaaast). The Trek 1000, 1500, hell even the FX series starting at the 7.5.
Opinons? Should I just wait to drop another 100 lbs then go ape on some light roadie, suffering for the next couple months on the big heavy MTB?
