    Carbon fork choice

    Building up my 1993 GT as an overbuilt single speed cross bike.

    I do have a budget and am trying to decide on the Nashbar Carbon Cyclocross Fork (although now I cannot seem to find it in 1 1/8"), or the Soma CX Straight Blade Canti Fork. Also considering the Nashbar chromoly version (but not available until Nov.).

    Any personal experiences with either? Any good fork recommendations around the $100 mark?

    Thanks!

    I bought the Nashbar carbon cx fork - for my recent build. Great value for the money IMO. It has both Canti posts as well as disc mounts. I removed the canti posts and plugged them with rubber plugs that I picked up at the LBS that came from a bike setup for Di2. Some frames come with the rubber plugs - perfect size to fill the canti post holes and looks great.

    I note: real Cross Bike forks for racing , like Ridley's, are quite more substantial than something you are not

    riding hard, and fast, across the turf.

    Is this for 700c wheels? Carver has a CX fork for $100 with a metal steerer and a $150 all carbon fork that look interesting. I have no experience with them, but they look like decent deals.
