Strengths:    Plush competitant ride

Weaknesses:    None that I can find

Bottom Line:   
A well built fork that exhibits a major amount of refinement. Steel steerer is important with the 1" head diameter. Not as stiff as the Kestral and better steerer than the Look.

Strengths:    Quality construction.

Weaknesses:    ??

Bottom Line:   
I bent my original steel fork in a crash and decided on carbon for the replacement. What I didn't want was a superlight, noodly fork that might waver when diving into a turn or a harsh, stiff one that would ruin the Cadillac ride of the Ibis. I decided the ultimate fork would be a lighter version of the steel I was accustomed to: I didn't want to worry about the fork failing or behaving 'un-fork-like'.

The Time Equipe w/alloy steerer has so far proven a good choice. It's a little heavier than other carbon forks but much lighter than the steel one I had before. For the type of riding I do (road races on rough roads/squirrelly criteriums), I have total confidence that this fork will not fail. I gave up nothing in terms of ride characteristics - the fork tracks well through corners/sucks up the big jolts just fine - and gained some weight savings.

If you're willing to give up high-zoot visual appeal for sturdiness, this fork is for you.
