There was a recent time when every cyclocross bike featured cantilever brakes. A number of steel road and/or touring bikes also employed this braking system. Canti's created more room for larger volume tires, clear mud extremely well, look cool and work just fine when properly installed. It can be a challenge to find a decent fork replacement for such bikes equipped with a straight 1⅛" headtube, but Ritchey has long produced a reliable, cost effective option.

With the updated Comp UD Carbon Cross Fork, Ritchey has improved the tire clearance, lateral stiffness and ride quality while maintaining helpful fender mounts and improving the overall aesthetic of one of the few forks offered for cantilever brakes and a 100mm quick release dropout. With vibration-muting carbon blades, alloy steerer, dropouts and crown, the Comp UD Carbon Cross Fork cross and road fork is ideal for cyclocross, touring pursuits or general purpose road riding.
