Folks

Hope that someone here can help - I bought a Giant Roam XR2 for commuting on last summer and now, with a bit of experience, I want to make it a bit lighter. For this read a LOT lighter...

I checked out the front fork weight and it is over 2kg. As my commute is all on city roads, the thought entered my head to swap the fork out for something more road oriented, maybe an Easton EC70 or something of that ilk.

Question is, will it be compatible with my disc brakes and, other than that, is it a viable proposition?

Thanks
Winton
