    I have the surly 1x1 disc/canti fork on my Boa with v-brakes. I want to switch to a lighter fork but I can't decide on a particular fork.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Another fork that looks and feals like the Zoo is the Echo urban fork. I got one myself and I suspect less flexy than the zoo yet the same weight.
    Both good choices. same length. I know Ken at thetrialsinshop.com has the Urban fork and I got it from him for 175 can.
    Or you could look for Cannandale Fatty R fork which is light and good too. But they may be hard to find.

    The zoo fork weighs less than 700 grams. The echo urban weighs 820 grams.

    i got a echo urban fork not long after i got the zoo
    the zoo was really light, but quite a bit flexier than the urban fork.
    my zoo fork is for sale if ur interested, however its a disc only
