    I'm thinking of using Cinelli Vai for stem, post, and bars. Black. 10 speed Campy Mix. Haven't totally decided on wheels, but probably something like Open Pro rims and Novatec hubs.

    Total project budget $2 to $2.5k.

    Excellent.

    Deda and Campy is another great pairing.

    i like ritchey fork but its a bit pricey. mine came with the framset when i bought it. i don't think my scroogeness would permit me to buy an expensive fork. i am looking for one and its all expensive.

    Thematically, I want to spec a Columbus fork. But I've only seen 45mm and Hab suggests 43mm.

    Of course, it's a Chinese frame so ...

    The Comp isn't very expensive.

    There used to be a lot more people selling aftermarket forks. It must not be worth the liability.

    there must have been a good market for updating old steel bikes with carbon forks. that must be pretty much finished, unless there are a whole bunch of undiscovered old steelies in sheds around the world.

    my steel ride still has the original steel fork. i see no reason to change it.

    when i put weight on the handlebars i hear creaking. checked everything. i'm still tying out other possibilities before i definitely get a fork. the problem is i crashed this bike in a slow motion crash and so maybe there is some weakness there.

    the shop mechanic did. and no obvious cracks. my latest hope is that the quick release skewers are causing the creaking. so far it is promising, but i need to take it for a good hilly ride where i put more weight on my hands to see if the creaking has really gone away.

    ...I'm still looking for a decent replacement fork for one of my custom builder steel
    frame acquisitions from last year because some ******* decided to carbon fork it
    and apparently tossed the original as now worthless.

    I see no reason to believe that stupid people will not continue to convert decent,
    high quality, older steel road bikes into fixed gears and carbon forked frankenbikes.

    If the shop said it's fine, it's probably fine.

    frankenbikes....i've seen nice steel frmes with bike fat carbon forks that look wrong. if they want a carbon fork, go fro something thin and stylish like that reynolds or the ritchey wcs. at least they are sleek.

    well, the mechanic said its not cracked but we still couldn't find the source of creaking. if this skewer possibility turns out to be the source, i will be dancing in the street. are you meant to grease the quick release? maybe that's the problem..it has dried out.

    I was eyeing that frame, at the time. But I wasn't in bike-buying mode then.
