My Ouzo Pro is 14 years old and I am thinking it is about time to replace it. Any recommendations on a good replacement for this fork?

It is going on a steel bike so super light weight is not an issue. Ok with an aluminum steerer.

Why do you want to replace it? That's one of the best forks ever made IMO.

I bought a Litespeed frame years ago and had the choice between an Ouza Pro and a Look HSC2. I made the unfortunate choice of the Look. It had straight legs and looked cool. A few years ago, I refurbished the bike -- everything new except the saddle, seat post and pedals. I looked high and low for a used Ouza Pro fork with 1" steerer. Found one on ebay. The bike rides a lot better than with that Look noodle.

Agree. Unless it's damaged leave it alone. I don't believe there's any particular age limit on carbon. I still have carbon forks from the 2001-2 era. Probably better made back then.

Thought that carbon would weaken over time faster than steel, etc. Guess I just keep riding it, it is not damaged and never a high speed wreck.

Don't mess with perfection. You've got nothing to fear about the carbon getting old. Hell, I rode a carbon bike to work that's older than your fork.
