Sorry this is slightly OT what with the bmx content.
I'd value your collective opinion as to wether i should fit the steel or the carbon fork to this build.
Ta :)

They're heavy so they don't snap in half when you come up short on that 30ft double in your 2nd moto after tangling elbows with another chap .

No contest, if your riding trails/tracks has to be steel.

Other alternative is trying a modern '24 fork on it form the likes of S&M or Standard, bet they're quite light these days :D
