    Best Source for carbon CX fork?

    It is easy to find road forks online. Is there a great online source for carbon CX forks? (I'm an hour from my nearest LBS and they don't do CX.)

    And, while we're at it, what are the best carbon CX forks out there? I ride an Easton EC-90 SL-X road fork. Are Easton's carbon CX forks good?

    You sure ask a lot of questions.

    I know...just bagin on ya.

    So you building, buying complete or what? I saw your SRAM v ShimaNO thread and it got me looking at the Redline Pro but the cost is too high. I am either going to wind up on a Moto or a Felt F1X.

    I'm buying complete this time. My wife offered to buy me a 'cross bike . . . and who am I to say "no"?

    Felt's F1X was actually the first bike I looked at. F1X prices went up for '09 (and they are sold out of my size in '08s). By the time you get to '09 in all three bikes, there's not much price difference among Trek XO-1, Felt F1X, and Redline Conquest Pro.

    Since I've been wanting to try some SRAM stuff (and since Felt's and Trek's SRAM-equipped 'cross bikes are FAR more expensive), I decided to go with the Redline.

    P.S. JFarr, although I'm buying complete, that doesn't mean I'm buying stock. We're switching the little ring to a 34 and switching the cassette to a SRAM 11-27.

    qbike.com does a quick search of popular online retailers and ebay auctions for specific products...I use it as a yardstick all the time
