OK there are 2 options which I'll have to think about.

Option 1 is the Mizuno straight forks I have on my wife's Wilier Triestina - which are about 200mm. These are virtually unused as my wife only rides her road bike about once a year.

Option 2 is the Pinarello Aria full-carbon fork I "haven't got round to" fitting to that same bike...... This had been overtightened by a previous owner but after cutting down to 180mm steerer is fine.

Will have a little think and see which one I want to hang onto. Odds are I´ll be offering you the Mizuno as I think the Aria fork will suit the Wilier best.
