    Carbon forks

    Hi - I am looking to upgrade the forks on my road bike (Giant OCR4, 700c wheels, sometimes used for tri's) to something lighter, preferably carbon. Can anyone recommend something that won't kill my limited budget (100 or less)? I was looking at some ITM Visia for about 80. Your comments are most welcome!

    Hi BB,

    Total Cycles as well. On ebay there are Look Carbon forks for under 80 buy now. An extremely light fork, more so then any others i've seen on the web for that price.

    1" Steerer carbon road forks

    I had this exact same problem and ended up with some very swanky Easton all carbon forks with a 1" steerer tube.

    They go for about 189 quid in the UK, choose a model from the link below then Google em.
