hahaha i know...it's a super sweet fork!

only reasons are that a previous owner put a star nut in, which scored the carbon a tiny bit, and it's 10+ years old, which is past my my comfort range for a carbon steerer tube fork (i weiigh about 175 and there is some gnarly pavement in brooklyn)

I'll do it justice though...got Easton EC90 straight blade carbon is in my ebay saved searches :-)
