Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What kind of fork is this?

I got this fork at a local sale. It looks like an early aughts carbon fork with aluminum shoulders. It is a 1" carbon steerer, which would go great on a Lemond I am building. However I am interested in the brand, it it only has a marque that is a superimposed spade, club, heart, and diamond. It sort of looks like a rip-off of Ciocc's marque.

Would any one have any info on it?



trying to figure out the marque

Colnago is a club, but no clue about the other three suits.

Hmm, carbon steerer in 1", probably not too shabby...

What's it weigh?

That looks almost identical to the Nashbar 1" carbon fork I have sitting in the basement. Right down to the sticker on the steerer.

So is that a Nashbar sticker, or did someone add that? I've been curious since no one just immediately recognized it.
