    Fork Suggestions for bike build up...

    Currently im looking at the following forks:

    Easton EC90 Aero Fork http://www.performancebike.com/shop/....cfm?sku=18315

    BP Stealth FTT Fork http://probikeriders.safeshopper.com/5/24.htm?646

    Reynolds Aero Ouzo Pro http://www.performancebike.com/shop/....cfm?SKU=14667 (Although i read somewhere that it wasnt a 'legal' fork)

    Alpha Q Aero http://www.wisecyclebuys.com/id237.htm

    the reynolds fork is only not legal for UCI events, like road races. I'm 99.99% sure its legal for triathlons.

    What about the fork makes it fall into the category of 'not legal' ?

    Look about half-way down this page: http://www.triathlete.com/art.asp?3=167

    Apparently some forks are "too aero" and fall foul of the UCI's specifications about what is and isn't allowed aerodynamically. The actual specification are here: http://www.uci.ch/english/about/rules/ch01_general.pdf - but it's a heavy read!
