The Alpina F04 is what I use. It's a 30mm rake. MSRP is $200. This is a reliable retailer. I've ordered from them:

I have one for sale if you want. The steerer is cut, so it depends on how much head tube you have (depends on what size your bike is). It's in good condition. Used on the track for one season. I replaced it with the same fork because I needed to stack more spacers.
