Bikes: '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

CarbonCycles Forks?

I'm contemplating replacing the 53,000+ mile Easton carbon fork on my bike and a direct replacement has been hard to find. I need a 1-1/8" straight steerer, 375 mm A-C, 43mm rake, caliper brakes and reasonable weight. I just found CarbonCycles which offers all the features I need at a very reasonable cost of $163. However, I know nothing about this company so I'm looking for reports from anyone with experience and who might know their reputation. Any information is appreciated.

I used one on a mountain bike that I built for a friends child. It seemed to be a very good quality fork. There is a guy at Bikerumor that just did a review of one of their forks. https://bikerumor.com/2020/06/26/rev...mountain-bike/

Thanks. I saw that review which is how I first heard about CarbonCycles at all. One of the commenters said he bought two of their forks 10 years ago so the company seem to have been around for a while. I was just wondering if the products were reliable as a fork isn't something I want to take a chance with.
