    3T Funda fork on a steel frame?

    I'm thinking about my upcoming steel build, for which i'll be using a carbon fork.

    Aesthetics are important on this build - I want matching seat post - stem - handlebars - fork.

    I have a bunch of 3T components already that i like, but the 3T Funda (aero) seems to not make much sense on a steel bike. The Rigida, unfortunately, is for tapered head tubes.

    Opinions? What would you go with?

    Other options are Easton, ENVE, Ritchey...what else?

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    If you run canti breaks you could get the ENVE cyclocross fork that curves the other way. For some reason I think that style of forks is super sexy

    I've got a few steelies with CF forks with 1" steerers. I'd go with the Ritchey. It works well, is less expensive than most and has an Al steerer, which I like.

    why not use the 3T Funda? As long as it's not tapered and it's matched to the frame, i.e. 1 1/8 to 1 1/8.
    I believe TH 36x45 will work for the Funda.
