    Tapered alu/steel/carbon fork that takes front panniers?

    I'm having trouble finding a fork to replace the Enve CX Disc fork on my Warbird TI.

    I need some front panniers for this summers adventures.
    I've got the Thule Pack'n'Pedal tour racks, but I am a bit concerned about putting weight on the Enve fork.

    So, a tapered steerer disc fork with either mid fork eyelets or canti studs for mounting a rack.
    And one that doesn't mess up the Warbirds geometry.

    I've found an alu one on a Stevens bike, but they wont sell it to me separately.

    That's going to be really tough to find. A had a look at a few sources and manufacturers that I know of, but couldn't find anything that meets all of your criteria.

    Is it the steerer tube on the fork that's tapered on the Warbird, or the headtube/headset in the Warbird's frame (larger bottom bearings, but it'll still take a standard 1 1/8" steerer)?

    IF its the latter, try looking at the Soma Saga, Soma Double Cross Disc, the Surly LHT Disc, Surly Straggler. All are steel forks, will take a disc brake, and have mid-blade rack mounts. Might have to call Soma about the Saga fork, as its not listed on their website as being a separate item from the Saga frameset.
    Are we having fun yet?

    Did you found a solution for this problem!.. I have exactly the same dilemma on my warbird ti, I want to fit a rando bag, and the thule rack looks like a good solution, I'm just skeptical to put it on the enve fork... Cheers
