    Carbon fork non-disc/canti up to 34 or 38mm clearance?

    Is there such a fork? would regular road brakes work?

    If you're going to have clearance for that kind of tire, the fork is going to have a long axle-to-crown length anyways, so you might as well go with a carbon cross fork equipped with canti studs. Why don't you want a fork with canti studs?

    don't wanna use canti brakes... have some ultegras... but i am thinking that it isn't possible with a larger tire as in a 38
