The reason I ask about the handling is because I am thinking of putting on a road fork for use in a road time trial in late February. I'm curious how it handles. The road fork will change the trail from around 60mm to ~45mm, depending on the fork.

For comparison:
took it to manchester velodrome for a shakedown yesterday, absolutely fantastic! Yet to get some aerobars to try on the road. Handling was sublime, including some evasive manouevres at 33mph when a beginner moved up right in front of me without looking!
