Hi!
I've got an Alan Supercarbonio many years ago. It has Dura Ace 9sp and Spinergy RevX Wheels.
Now, I've got it with a "no brand" carbon ahead fork (ths guy that sold it to me told me that it was a Mizuno fork "Pesenti Design", but there's no sticker on it, and I think it's a "no brand" fork) , and a Ritchey WCS stem.
I was thinking in change fork to a lighter Look HSC full carbon fork (2nd hand, too)...
What do you think???
It's a good idea that old fork with that old frame???
Thanks!!!

I think in the 80s/90s the Alan Carbonio originally come with an SR aluminium fork? Are we talking about the same bike (carbon tubes bonded into aluminium lugs)?

Bottom line though is to get it to ride as you prefer and then get out and ride it!
