Choosing between Easton EC90X and EC70X
I'm building a new single cross bike and could use some fork advice. I like the Easton's over the Ritchey's only because the blades are straight. Should I get the carbon steerer tubed 90 or aluminum tubed 70? The 70 weighs 3/4 pound more than the 90 but I worry about the carbon tube. Builder says not to worry, but he's the only one so far...
Also, does anyone know if the blades are the same?
I weigh 195 and end of this season/next season, will be my first year attempting to race, ever. Otherwise the bike will be used as my main bike for general purpose, cross-country style mountain biking on dry trails (somewhat rocky & rutted), and coffee runs.
