Some carbon rigid fork could nice..

With disc brakes ? :shock:
A carbon fork on it is a joke. The bike would look like a modern ugly road bike.
I didn't want a suspension fork on it, and I was thinking about a classic steel fork. The marin-litespeed is segmented, like some tange trust design, I saw on very old Ibis

lovely!.....the fork is identical to my litespeed so i think you are on the right lines there......

The 3 only differences with a litespeed is the 1"1/8 steerer, better weljob, and titanium dropouts :D

:lol:
I only saw suspension fork with old carbon fiber, like pace or specialized FSX, but I don't remember stiff carbon fiber fork. But perhaps someone could give me some ideas.

But I agree with the combination Ti and Carbon. I'm not a fan of carbon fiber (too plastic), but black or dark parts fit fine on that frame. And I have found some nice USE seatpost an bar.
I ever made full titanium bike, but for riding, it's not so sweet, and the Ibis with only titanium parts seems so sad and too serious.
