Title says it all. I have a steel CX disc frame in need of a carbon 1 1/8" fork with disc brake tabs. A few manufacturers make this but hoping to save a bit by buying used. Let me know what you have....thx

I have an Igleheart with curved blades in flat black if that interests you? Not carbon, but pretty cool.

Let me know if interested....

Try the nashbar cyclocross fork. Cheap, light, strong and it looks good.

Thx for the Nashbar suggestion. Looks like they only carry 1 inch, and it looks to have both disc and canti which my stylish hipster side can't live with! The search continues....

Agreed - I hate the dual brake system look!

PS try for a redline carbon fork - they are quite nice and sometimes out there on Ebay

Will check that out. Looks like most carbon cross forks have moved to a tapered steerer - I need a non-tapered 1 1/8"

Ritchey is supposed to come out with a full carbon 1 1/8 fork some day. Originally I saw late summer, but their webpage still doesn't show it as being available. That is what I am holding out for.

QBP currently shows an ETA of the first week of november for the 1 1/8" Ritchey carbon disc cross fork.

Thanks for the info. If used doesn't pan out that Ritchey might be my best option.

I think that the Carver CX fork is the next best deal after the Nashbar. I wonder whether Nashbar is out of stock or have discontinued the 1-1/8". Picture of Nashbar fork with the brake tabs removed attached.

I hope this actually happens, as there are apparently fewer and fewer options.

Does anyone know if the Ritchey will have fender eyelets? For some reason I'm having difficulty locating it

Ritchey fork link here. (http://ritcheylogic.com/cross/forks/wcs-carbon-disc-cross-fork-matte-ud.html) No eyelets. I was going to buy some extra eyelets from PDW (https://www.ridepdw.com/goods/spare-parts/eyelet-set-for-full-metal-fenders) that mount on the QR axle (probably better to order the spare parts kit (https://www.ridepdw.com/goods/spare-parts/fmf-hardware-pack) for the fenders because you get 2 sets for $3 more). I use them with their fender set on a Seven Elium and they work fine. You are forced to remove the QR when taking the wheel off but otherwise they work.

I'm also keeping my fingers crossed that these forks actually make it for sale. The delivery date has slipped a couple of times already. Not many options for older frames and very few (any?) with a carbon steerer.

Wound Up is the main option. Anyone have one that they'd sell?

Bump. Thought I'd found one but steerer was too short. Need minimum steerer of 220mm.

I'd have a wound up for you guys but we are waiting on the Ritchey! :-):mad:

I'm all over that wound up if it becomes available. Otherwise still looking...

Are you looking for full carbon, or carbon w/ an aluminum steerer? For full carbon, the options are really limited. I'm holding out for the Ritchey, but I can have tabs added to my frame at any time, so I'm not in a rush.

If you're good with an Al steerer, there's Whiskey...

The whiskey is a tapered steerer so won't work on my bike. So far best new option I've found is a Spot Brand cross fork...$375 and full carbon. Still hoping a used wound up will show up.

I stand corrected though quick web search of US dealers shows no one is carrying them... One site has them listed as discontinued.

Bump…
Still looking for that mysteriously rare 1 1/8" non-tapered carbon disc cross fork. Have a few options for new but holding out to see if I can find a reasonably priced used fork. A used Wound Up would be nice!!!

Lynskey offers a non tapered fork with carbon legs and an alloy steerer for the Viale. No idea who makes it. Listed at $290 when bought with a frame. 395, 45.

i would just wait for the new ritchey fork to hit shelves...looks pretty nice to me.

The links posted to the Ritchey website are now dead. I'm guessing it has slipped again.

Who can check QBP again and post an update on the arrival date?

I have a Wound Up, TeamX disc only with fender mounts that I was thinking of "upgrading" to the Ritchey if it weighed significantly less, but now that I realize that it doesn't have fender mounts, I am less likely to do the swap. Also, there is no fork crown hole to mount a dyno headlight :(

Also, BikeRumor has photos from Interbike 2013(!):
Ritchey’s long had a straight steerer carbon fork, but it was built for mountain bikes’ geometry. Now, they’re about to make a lot of people really happy. This prototype carbon disc brake fork is planned only as a straight 1-1/8″ steerer with a cyclocross friendly 395mm axle to crown height.

Q says 11/7 on both the fork and swiss cx disc frame sets...take that with a grain of salt though, those dates only SOMETIMES mean something.

I'm picturing an entire container of frames and forks showing up at Ritchey just as cross season is ending.

Curious, would a 26" mtb fork have about the same crown-to-axle and offset as a 700c cross fork? Haven't researched it but maybe that's an option???

I have a Wound-up disc fork but it's their light touring model...376 a-c.
It's painted matte army green with silver crown, dropouts and disc brake tab.
I can PM you more details if you're interested...

just a quick search on salsa's 26" disc offering says 425mm A-C, so around 30mm taller than a "standard" cx fork.

When I was looking a few years ago, Trigon made some 1 1/8" carbon disc forks.
They pop up occasionally on Ebay.
Here's something similar:
http://www.trigon-cycles.co.uk/trigon-xc06a-2012-carbon-disc-fork

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-TRIGON-FULL-CARBON-RIGID-FORK-DISC-ONLY-/261228753632?pt=US_Forks&hash=item3cd27272e0

I thought I remembered reading that Trigon made some of Ritchey's forks.
