700c disc forks?
 
Didn't know where to put this. Not looking for suspension forks, but interested in finding out what forks are available for 700c wheels. Cyclocross?, tandem? some hybrids? some mtn bikes?

Ideas on where to look will be appreciated. thanks

Thanks seattle.

BTW, what's a cyclocross fork?

I only found bontrager and easton. Woundup's website has problems and nashbar is too suspect for a fork.

Again, thanks to those who replied

Almost any 700c disc brake or cantilever fork with clearance for 30mm tyres or larger.

what's wrong with Nashbar? in most cases, it's just "name brand" stuff re-badged (or "de-badged," if you prefer). i've got a Nashbar frame and carbon disc fork that i've not had any issues with.

I picked up the Nashbar carbon disc cyclocross fork a couple years back. Its worked out great, appears to be a rebadged winwood fork for a decent price. Has space for fenders if your a commuter.

The Kona Project 2 suits the bill.

Some Nashbar stuff is find (their canti brakes for example), but some of it is rubbish (their panniers for example). To make matters worse their re-badged products are often more expensive that the original.

What's the point of buying house brand goods when the name brand ones are cheaper?

You asked what was wrong with Nashbar branded products. I simply told you. :)
