Something that weighs less than the moon would be good! Posted 9 years ago snakebiteMember Bonty Alu or Carbons….Pace, Whyte Bros….. Posted 9 years ago EvoKnievelMember Sorry – with disc mount as well Posted 9 years ago kelvinSubscriber Disc mount and light? You’ll need to go Carbon or Alu. Or both (like the pretty Bontrager forks). Posted 9 years ago kelvinSubscriber Steel + disc mounts + not flappy = not light forks I’m afraid Posted 9 years ago PeterPoddyMember What’s wrong with the standard ones? I can’t see the point of trying to lighten a frameset that’s made of gaspipe in the first place. Point = missed, IMO (I’m a Roadrat owner) Posted 9 years ago MountainMutantMember Pace Carbon/Ti ctypes for me. Bit longer than the standard fork but no ill effects on my commuter MM Posted 9 years ago MountainMutantMember To add…I mashed my old forks into a pedestrian! Posted 9 years ago EvoKnievelMember The standard ones are a bit heavy! Posted 9 years ago HoratioHufnagelMember Most carbon MTB forks aren’t actually that light, about 1kg for the bontrager ones, which is about the same as an aluminium fork or a kona P2. To go really light you’d have to ditch the disc brake, and get a road/cyclocross fork. Posted 9 years ago ClinkSubscriber http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/components/forks-rigid/product/steelfork-09-33989 not sure how light though… Posted 9 years ago EvoKnievelMember Thanks for the constructive replies. I’m not looking to build a superlight. I’d be starting from a different point if that was the case. I’m getting ready to use it for commuting and just fancied losing a bit of weight off the front.
