I've got a rush hour pro that I commute with on some crappy roads. It's got a stock cf fork.
I've been looking at a lot of the '90 gen cannondale track bikes (also alluminum) and wondered about the fact that they have steel forks. From what I gather the bike was praised for being so rigid. If so, why not go with a alluminum/cf fork as they're more rigid (atleast alluminum is)?
Let's say a steel fork would really improve my commute (brick roads, good pavement, bad pavement, random obsticals thrown into the street, really deep random pot holes), where could I find one for under $100? I looked into the Surly steamroller fork, but I'd like to find one with zero rake. Thanks.
