I've seen this fork used on an LHT custom build in the US, it's light 450gr, has loads of clearance and is virtually identical to the LHT fork per dimensions. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CARBON-bike-M ... HGLGYnq1cA
The main reasons I want a light tourer (with camping kit facilities) are three fold : We're cycling from the UK to Gibraltar, take about 30 days more or less. Half camping, the other half hotels/b+b in big towns and cities. Likely there will be a of carrying up stairs ect in cities. We plan to have 3-4 rest days so I'd like a light bike to mosey around the Alps and the Pyrenees. Riding 500 miles of the Camino also, about 20% of which is on very rough tracks, and a fair bit of that can't be cycled. I do not fancy pushing (or pulling!) a 60lb loaded tourer down/up steep rock strewn hills.
As I've said, this is a custom build. Probably electronic, (for those concerned about reliability I've a cousin in Canada just took an LHT with di2 through two brutal Canadian winters without even a flutter), probably disc front, full V rear (thanks guys!), and hopefully under 10kg without baggage.
As for wheels I've no idea yet, visiting a local wheel builder famous for strong build this weekend. (the wheels, not the wheel builder
