Aerus Full carbon fork?

It came with my BLUE RC6 and I would like to use it for the matching paint job, if it's as stiff and compliant as the EC90 SL. The weight is about the same.


The fork weighs in @ 348g un-cut.

Well, I had the Eaton from the LS I had and it's a very sweet fork!

I am going to go with the original fork as soon as a new one arrives. The first one had an issues with the paint under the HS flaking due to it was on display with the frame and I wanted a new one.

I also agree with the looks. I love the easton, but soem how the frame just does not look as pretty. if I do not like the Aerus fork, I will get a fork with the same rake and have it re-painted to match!

Well I got the FSA on Close-out for very cheap and I prefer the look of carbon on the cranks.
The arms are only 350g. The BB is 147g for a total of 497g
The Extralite road cranks are 487-490g, so only 10g heavier for the FSA.

Yes, it's an ISIS BB, but ISIS seems to be fine and a very good application for Road BBs. I don't need/or feel the need for a stiffer BB/crank. If the Extralite cranks where crabon, then yes.

Also the newer Extralite E-Bones QRC will only come in compact sizing.
