I bought an Enve fork that I was thinking of putting on a gunnar crosshairs. The fork rake on the Enve is 47mm and gunnar suggests a 43mm. I know that it will likely be a little twitchy compared to a 43 or 45. Has anyone put a enve fork on a crosshairs? Did you like it or dislike? Thoughts?

I want to use the bike for road, crushed limestone path and backup cross bike.

I wanted to paint the fork to match the frame but if the fork doesnt work out then its money down the drain.

Bicycle trail calculator:

73 deg head tube, 32mm tires, 43mm rake gives 61mm of trail. 47mm of rake gives 57mm of trail. Steering might be a little quicker but you'll get used to it in no time.
