Hrm, so I've read what you guys think and maybe I should switch to a lower front ring, maybe a 47 or so. I like how the 52 feels but yeah, in an emergency it might be a bit of a problem. Does anyone have one they wouldn't mind parting with? For a decent price?

And yes, I think leaving the steer-tube uncut is good for now as I am not sure how much I like this fork. I am so used to the aluminium Kinesis fork from my conversion that this one is a bit too spongey. Great input folks, I appreciate it

Yeah, I like it alot and have gotten used to it but the carbon is nice too, just takes some getting used to. I have a carbon fork on my Roubaix but it has a Zertz insert, which is apparently used for vibration dampening, so the carbon fork on the GT has quite a different feel.
