I have a steel frame that I am incrementally changing for cyclocross. With a steel frame, would an aluminum fork work fine since the frame already does a good job of absorbing the shock or would it still be worth it to go with a carbon fork? Nashbar has their carbon fork on sale, but I also saw a Redline al fork for basically 100 bucks. I thought if I could, I'd save sixty bucks or so, but if the extra $$ for a carbon fork is worth it, then I'd consider that as well. Thanks!
