    the last thing you want is a pursuit geo when you are bombing sketchy stuff.

    I was kidding. I'm just trying to make her a pursuit frame to ride around on. Links would be cool.

    but... a 650 fork won't make a track bike a pursuit bike. It will make a track bike in to a track bike with greater chance of pedal strike.
    Sucks to your ass-mar!

    Actually, I'm looking for one too. My girl owns a 43cm fuji w/ 650c (She's really short)

    She wants the bike to be more comfortable and lighter, so I'm looking for a review or suggestions on a carbon fork for 650c wheels.

    yeah because lowering the bottom bracket closer to the ground by adding a shorter fork and smaller wheel won't have any effect whatsoever.

    That and you handling will suck as you are essentially de-raking your bike. Look at a pursuit bike headtube angle vs. a steamroller, now drop down the front end another 51mm with a smaller wheel, plus another 51mm with the shorter fork...
