Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

2009 Wilier Izoard fork or Easton EC90 SLX

Just got the Izoard and it looks amazing. Im wondering if I should use the stock carbon fork on the Izoard or use my other EC90 SLX, which I've always thought was great, but might would it ruin the sexy look of the Izoard?

Nice bike nothing wrong with the original fork but if you are going to buy an Easton I'd suggest the Easton EC90 SL over the EC90 SLX the SL is much stiffer than the SLX and it's also most likely has more flex than the stock fork so if an upgrade is what you are looking for get the Easton EC90 SL.

Frame looks just like this one

I have the 2010 Izoard. What's "wrong" with the stock fork, or, what are you looking for in a replacement/upgraded fork? Do you have the stock wheelset? Mine came with the Fulcrum R5's and IMO, upgrading that would be my first step, say to the R3's.
