    Yeahhh get a leader fork. It'll be more proper and not to mention look better than that cheapie.

    I think this might work if you wanted to use a tapered fork and the inner diameter of the headtube is 44mm. It will add some height though.

    Someone else would have to chime in and confirm that for me though.

    thanks for the suggestion. I'm defiantly not experienced enough, nor will I be doing any type of riding to where I NEED a full carbon fork. my only thoughts leading to the 3T originally were some of the advantages I knew about carbon and the fact the price point was about equal to an entry level fork. the leader forks probably are better fitted for my pay grade money/experience wise. it sounds like it'll take less modification up front which is better for me being as I'm still learning about a lot of the parts that make up a standard build. I'll have to keep in mind that it is possible though for further down the road. good to know.
