    Vicious Cycle Disc vs Winwood Muddy Disc

    Does anyone have experience with these two forks that would be willing to compare them for me? Or perhaps make a recommendation? I know the Vicious Cycles Fork is 138g heavier, but is it significantly stiffer? I have been using a noodle of a fork on my Mountain Cycle Stumptown and cannot get the the front disc to stop squealing. I am pretty sure that my current Sibex fork is just to light and flexy. Don't tell me it is going to break and I'm going to die, I know all the chatter. Thank you for your opinions.

    I'm running a Vicious (non-disk) fork on my bike and it rides well. No complaints. I've not ridden the Windwood for comparison.

    Very nice bike ! Are those old XTR Canti's ? I have the steel road Break-away and can see the need for a CX folder as well

    No first hand experience with the Vicious cyclocross disc, but have used the Kona P2 disc, a Wound Up Disc (still have), and the Winwood. The Winwood was OK, nothing remarkable, as was the Kona (inexpensive though). I have used the Vicious 29er fork and it is very nice; I would expect the cross model but feel nice as well, but again, haven't tried it.

    Thanks for the feedback. Looks like I should go with the Vicious, besides it's a great name. Nice looking Richey!

    Yep. They are the original m900 XTR cantis. They work great - and doesn't have any sharp edges to cause damage to the bike when it's packing into it's suitcase.

    They're older Ritchey Mount Cross tires. I don't think that they're made any more, but I have a couple of sets. They're 38mm which is perfect for long trail rides.

    Winwood fork has done very well for me for the past 8 months of committing and fireroads. Rides nice. Not a light fork, but it does what I want it to.
