i know theres loads of hype about the odyssey 41 thermal forks, but when i was looking at them the other day i saw some odyssey GI forks aswell, but i cant find any specs of them or any reviews, so i was wondering, are they heavy, any body know what they weigh? and are they at all strong?

im not too sure how much they weigh but it will be simelar to the 41 dirt forks as the tube thickness is about the same. they will be a couple of oz heavier i guess. they seem to be good, quite strong, nice geometry, good weight, and cheap.

i checked the odyssey website and it does say about the weight.
but like shrapnel said...they will just be a few oz more than the 41 thermal dirts or whatever.

so do you reckon i should buy them over the dirt forks saving £30?meaning i can get new pedals or move down a sprocket size so i can finally be 39-14 not 44-14 as i am now?

if you want to save 30 then i would say get them.
they are just as strong as the dirts just a little heavier..but don't worry about that...i would say get them.
