    Rigid Carbon Fork

    Looking at buying a new hybrid but it has a rigid carbon fork. I do not mind that it has no suspension, my current bike has none as well. My concern it that it will not hold my 260 pound weight, and that it is disc brake specific and the disc brake mount may brake with my weight. I contacted the bike maker, was assured that the fork will hold 300 pounds. The fork in question is a Windsor Aero Bladed 700c carbon fork.

    Thoughts?

    I can't say much about this fork. However, if I were a heavy guy looking at carbon fork, I'd look for non-bladed (ie, round) fork with thru axle, and yes they also tend to be burly looking and heavy too. But hey, if you want sturdiness, go for the burly looking ones
