    I love this prototype gravel bike. But please, by all that is holy, DO NOT force us to buy it with a carbon fork. The reason I am interested is because of the vulnerabilities of carbon components.

      Just curious what you would prefer? Would guess most anything else would be a mismatch with that frame. Perfectly happy with my carbon fork on my Ti No.22 Great Divide, and I am 185#.
