    Forks forks forks
    I read the reviews, now I turn to you all. New frame coming in soon, I would like to build it up stiff and light. Dean Ti frame...
    Parts thus far: Durace, Thomson Masterpiece seatpost, Ritchey WCS stem. Wheelset is still in question as is the fork. I ride an Ouzo Pro now, but I need to replace it because the steerer is too short. Recommend light, stiff and responsive. I will check to see the rake that I require. Is Wound Up considered light? I just really dig the looks of it. I know that Reynolds has put out a light version of the Ouzo Pro..but I don't know anything about it.
    I am 54 y.o., 5'11", 140 lbs. No racing, but every ride tends to end up as competition. I will do a number of centuries this season as well as about 100 miles+ weekly. I fill the other time of the week with mtbking.

    fork length..
    Do you know what fork length the frame is built for? That might limit your choices, since not all brands are the same length and it will affect the head tube angle and steering trail.

    I thought I would ask it as a "general" question, and do the specifics later. This way it could be a topic that others could join in on. I would get a bunch of choices and then see which fit my needs.
