    Wanting to upgrade cx fork

    I am looking to upgrade the fork on my fuji cross bike. The factory fork is very heavy and has a chromoly steerer. What would be a good reasonably priced fork to go with. I was looking at nashbars cross fork but am not sure how good it is. Any advice would be appreciated!

    I doubt anything "reasonably priced," is going to be any better or lighter than your stock fork. If it were me, I'd watch ebay for a used Ritchey WCS fork.
    Want to buy: 56mm-58mm Ritchey road frame

    Carver fork from Bikeman.

    Add in the cost of a V-brake and travel agent.

    Nashbar fork is supposed to be the same as a winwood dusty. Will probably improve the ride but not save much weight.

    Well I ended up finding a mint condition cx20 fork off craigslist for 110.00. Its full carbon and seemed like a good deal, how would this compare to other forks? I know its late to be asking since I bought it already, but it seemed to get decent reviews.

    The CX20 is highly regarded.
