    Control Tech Lightning vs. Winwood Fanaticist Fork

    Does anyone have any experience with either of these forks? I'm trying to keep in the 'all carbon'/ $200/ 350g range and don't want (or need) a super stiff fork. I'm 137 lbs.and a fitness/ recreational rider.

    Both forks seem to have the same general specs, and ideally I'm looking for 370mm axle to crown measurement, 43mm rake and ability to accept a Cane Creek S8 (non integrated) headset - 1 1/8" steerer/ 30mm race.

    If not these, any other suggestions?

    Unsure if you are still looking for it ... 3 yrs later ...

    I am now using the Controltech. It is on my first road bike and very happy with it so far. Only done 150miles though so unable to comment much. But compared to my hybrid with alloy handlebars and steel fork, this carbon fork with carbon drop bars are world's apart.

    As for the rake. I am not sure whether it is 43mm or 45mm? I could not find that information online, but just went with it because it was cheap compared to similar weighted forks and the fact that it had a slight bend.
