Hot! Hot! Hot! Red lightweight road fork with 1" steerer.

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

Hot! Hot! Hot! Red lightweight road fork with 1" steerer.

Really light 1" carbon road forks have all but disappeared, but see this one in bright red. Easton EC 90. Used, and expensive, and the steerer is cut kinda short, but I think it is really hot. No idea what the rake is. Not for me, but I thought someone might be interested in it.

I've got three hot red 1" steerer forks. But not light. All are steel. One 531, one a Bridgestone(?) and one probably Columbus.

Good color!

I got rid of the1" lightweight carbon fork on my Torelli - it was too noodly in the steer tube. When climbing or sprinting I could wiggle it back and forth enough to eventually loosen the headset. I replaced it with a carbon fork with a steel steer tube and its rock solid now, though a few grams heavier.

Yep, just a few!

Seriously, I think that was a problem with a lot of the 1" carbon steerers. I have never seen anything like it with name-brand 1 1/8" forks though.
