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


Im sure there were some others i was looking at but cant remember. What recommendations can yall give? Advice on picking one?


Thanks!

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!
