Carbon fork w/ low rake.

I'm looking for a low rake carbon 1 1/8" fork, for 700c and drilled for a brake.

I've been looking a lot on the internet, but can't seem to find any.. Anyone got a good sugestion for a fork that matches these criterias?

Thanks!

Alpina track fork, rake is 30, you can buy it online by itself. The pista concept's fork rake is 28 but you can't buy it by itself. They sell the Alpina drilled and undrilled. Concept fork is not drilled for comparison sake.

Yes, i've been looking at the Alpina, but i haven't seen it drilled ? Are you sure that's not a TT version, with higher rake?

yeah, I'm sure. TokyoFixedGear had it for a while but not anymore. It might be worth just emailing to find out. I too was searching for an Alpina track fork for awhile. I ended up getting the undrilled version, and went to Kalavinka to have have it drilled.

Okay, and it holds up well enough? I'm a bit afraid of drilling in carbon, but i guess if it's done by a pro. it would be okay.
