Carbon Fork

2197 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  chh55
I've been considering a few different road bikes with a steel frame for my next purchase. One of them being a Lemond Zurich with a carbon fork, as well as an Italian frame with a steel fork. Can anyone offer an opinion on carbon vs steel forks with respect to handling and ride?

The carbon will be lighter and more responsive. The steel fork will be heavier and more of a cushion, not to mention being more durable. It all comes down to your type of riding and what feels best to you.
