I have a fancy carbon fork that came with my bike and good brakes athat are toes in properly. I get quite a lot of shuddering and was wondering if anyone tried swapping to a steel fork and if it worked?

I'd hate to add a couple pounds to my bike and might just live with the issue, but I am curious.

My Empella was louder than a fire truck under braking, until I switch to paul brakes and now she is totally silent, plus actually stops when I want to.

I have the cartidge type brakes (pauls, w/ the pads that come w/ them) I might swap with the salmon colored pads.

I'm used to my steel fork on the Merckx road bike, I did not realize how flexy the carbon (I have a nice reynolds fork) steerers are, I really notice the difference and I'm not one to notice things.
