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

new fork suggestions

Hi all, I have a cannondale optimo frame in the BBQ color (essentially the same as the caad9 BBQ). My fork recently snapped, and I have to get a new one. Any suggestions on a fork that would match the frame (looking for either all matte black, or ones with matte black and either white or red)

I figure I might as well add something that looks good (i have seen some real hot BBQ caad9s)

Also my bike has DA7800, black stem/seatpost, and black aksium wheels to give you an idea of what it looks like and what the fork would be matching

lol yea i guess price is the most important part. Considering my frame is old as it is, I'm not trying to spend a whole lot (it'll snowball in my head and I will convince myself to buy a caad10 frame somehow instead of just a fork)
