I got this Fuji FC-770 carbon fork for my fuji, but I was a tard' so didn't know there was a difference between 1" and 1 1/8". Long story short, it didn't work.
Looking to sell it on Craigslist, or if its not worth much, might give it to a friend.
How much is it worth? 50$?
The offset is 45, wheel size is 700 and it has an aluminum alloy steer tube.

How much did you pay for it?

Take that and subtract 10%.

Probably a Fuji...

Toss it up on yer local CL for 70 and expect lowballers to chime in with $50. Net loss, five bones.

it's for some sort of fuji bike.
cheap, because it looks like it uses an aluminum steerer bonded to carbon forks.

So the quality isn't good enough for me to put it on a bike I might get in the future, and its not quite cheap enough for me to give it to a friend?
Guess the only option is to sell it...

Found it! by looking through fuji catalogues. It comes from a 2008 CCR 3 road bike. Does this change anything?

uses entry level parts all around, but a carbon frame.
The only thing good about it is the frame.

Most carbon forks with lower end bikes are carbon with al steerers, true. But for most people I would recomend that over a full carbon fork. No one wants to be Big George at Paris-Roubaix.
