1" Carbon Fork for Tandem

I am trying to update a 1978 mercian tandem that has a steel fork and cannot find anywhere a 1" carbon fork that is rated for a tandem cycle. Can anyone help? Thanks - John

It might be worth writing to Winwood to see whether they would endorse the use of their Dusty cross cyclocross fork for use on a tandem. As I recall, their disc brake model has been used on some tandems. The Dusty is available with carbon blades, and 1" aluminum steering tube.

Wound Up can make you a 1" tandem carbon fork for somewhere in the neighborhood of $500. You have to go through a dealer or bike shop to order & pay for it, but they'll answer your questions via email.
