    I have one of these from IRD, I think it's the same thing. I ordered it through my LBS, although they did snicker a bit and wondered why I'd want such a thing.

    By no means am I an expert but I have one frame under my belt. I'm surprised you are using a #5 tip. I've found little reason to go bigger than a #1 on a bike. Reducing the orface size may help...

    Standard fork blades taper from around .9mm to .6mm where the disk blades are around 1.1mm wall thickness. Disk brakes shift the forces from the top of the crown to the blades so the thicker blades...

    What he gave you was versitility and you will thank him later when you want to put some 43mm Rock&Roads in there (and you will). The only cost for the additional clearance is asthetics.
