I thought the 1st generation c40 had steel precisa forks?


They were, with matching paintwork as well... These are the full carbon Star ;)

For crimped you mean with the "star" shape? As long as I know mine was a limited edition for the Lampre Panaria Paris Roubaix and originally had the steel forks... Apparently better for the Classics... But then upgraded to the full carbon Star forks ;)

well Gentlemen, to be sure, the yellow frame here is a 1st generation c40, with steel forks (my old)
the black frame is a 2nd generation c40, with star forks, and crimped, masteresque down tube and top tube ( my current)
