Help! Does anyone out there know where I can get a 1inch steerer full carbon fork. I have seen Easton EC90SL forks advertised but no supplier seems to be able to get hold of the one inch ones. The bike that I need the fork for is an Airborne Zeppelin (2000 model) which is a great bike and is definitely one that I want to keep riding, the original fork on this bike is a Profile Design BRC but the only ones of those that I can find are in the USA and the websites all say not for sale outside the USA. So it is over to you.

    Wound Up still do a 1" version of their fork.

    Other than that I'd suggest you keep an eye on ebay and see what comes up and also visit a few shops local to you and see what they have (my old LBS had a few 1" forks still in stock when I was looking a couple of years ago).

    A quick google turned up this. Unfortunately in the US but they do ship to the UK. http://www.bikewagon.com/09-Easton-EC90 ... 1594.html# and this by Mizuno with a 45mm rake. http://www.excelsports.com/main.asp?pag ... rCode=GIOS I suspect there may be more options closer to where you live out there as well.

    1" all carbon forks are reknown for being quite flexy torsionally - IME you'd be better off with an aluminium steerer
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    ^^ This + 1.
    I have an all carbon Time Stiletto "Feather Light" fork, with 1" steerer.

    It's light!
    It looks nice!!
    It's very comfortable!!!
    It flexes like crazy, under brakes particularly, and scares the cr@p outta me sometimes!!!!

    Get an alloy steerer one instead.
