    Winwood cross fork. MSRP $315 carbon cross forks are expensive to begin with

    Maybe something used on ebay.

    I've got an extra Alpha Q CX20, its all yours for $570

    I just checked on ebay and there are leader and kinesis carbon forks new for under $200

    I believe Nashbar are rebadged Winwood, seem reasonable.

    [The aluminum fork isn't making your hands numb. Your death grip on the bars and/or high tire pressure are. I think you'd be better off switching tires to something bigger and lower pressure, than switching the fork. Just my 2c.]

    It's a lot cheaper and easier to try the grip and tire pressure thing first.

    Numb is so much better than pain.
