    I know this may be a dumb question, but I was wondering if it's possible to equip the 06' pista concept with a steel(or aluminum) fork. Following that is there any forks out there that that closesly resemble bianchi pista concept's fork? I've had the fork for awhile, and I'm starting to worry more about the fork failing every year. Maybe I'm just going crazy with all the talk about carbon failing.

    Do you do barspins or trick with it? If not don't worry about it, they're strong forks as long as you don't do stupid stuff with them.

    bianchi pista concept fork is the same Alpina track fork seen on dolans, etc.

    I have the Alpina fork on mine (yet to ride, unfortunately) it's basically the same thing and if you're in the Bay Area there's 2 great deals on CL

    A steel fork on an aluminum frame with an integrated headset would look hideous IMO. Listen to these guys.

    Yeah, I've seen it done before on the new firefly track bikes and it looks super awkward, that's why I was asking (what I meant to say) if there were any steel forks that looked like the stock carbon fiber forks.
