i'm dropping my 2007 Orange clockwork to be painted tomorrow but i can't decide what to do about the fork.

the rockshox reba has finally died so as this is now my winter bike i'm happy to go rigid, so my choices are as i see it the pace rc31 or the f8 fork from orange.

i like the idea of the f8 fork as it's their fork but i think in the longer a-c it looks a little weird whereas the rc31 in the longer lengths still looks fine i think because of the chunkier crown and legs.

also it should be said that if i get the f8 fork i'll have it painted to match, and if i do that i'll probably get the stem painted aswel.

what do you think? F8 or RC31?
:)

I had that same debate on exactley the same frame a while back, agree the modern f7 looks a bit odd. I understand the dilllema with the need to paint at the same time..

I would go with the pace.

i must admit i am leaning towards the pace fork, mainly because it looks more bulky
