Bikes: Too many. Cannondale SuperSix, Trek Remedy 8, Trek Crossrip+ get the most ride time.

I wouldn't stress over the rake too much, as 47mm is slightly uncommon, 45 is reasonably common, and 43 is the most common. You probably can't tell much between 2-3mm at all, less rake will be more stable at speed and less responsive. There are a couple of carbon options still kicking around new, and certainly NOS or used, or your bike would look plenty classy with a matching steel (not alloy, which in bikelandia means aluminum, which is a pretty awful fork material) fork as well.

If you want to go all in: https://www.woundupcomposites.com/product/road-x-1/, for sure.

I'd probably do https://us.ritcheylogic.com/us_en/bi...rbon-road-fork and not worry so much about rake.
