Carbon forks? no thanks. Ridden them before and find them twangy and unpleasent. can't see the point in them on this, it's light enough and sharpening the head angle would make it to twitchy for the riding i like. It steers quick enough as it is yet can still carve the turns at Thetford absolutly fine. In fact i'm surprised at seeing you want to sharpen the steering up on yours, after riding probably a dozen 29ers i find the swift to be one of the most agile, wouldn't want to make it twitchey.
For me it was a quick and dirty way to shed weight but as you say carbon forks are an aquired taste. They have tightened mine up a treat, not just the sharpening of the headangle but the drop in weight up front is noticable.
These Singular frames are great though, versatile enough to build up however you like whilst still looking like classy
