Trying to decide which of these two forks with steep offset would be a better buy...Really like the invest cast dropouts in the Shadow inceptive. ..just don't know if invest cast dropouts are stronger than traditional welding...Like the Fit FK'S but the dropouts look big I'm real specific on dropouts. I know the Shadow Captive forks have been known to Crack at the coffin cutout near crown..

The Fits would probably be a safer bet than the Shadows. I really wouldn't trust the dropouts of the Shadow forks. But, to be fair, S&M made forks haven't had the best reputation lately, but the new Fit forks look pretty damn good.

Can't make a fork post without recommending Odyssey forks. Strongest forks you can buy, and until another company proves that wrong, it will stand. Plus they have the absolute best warranty in the industry; lifetime warranty against bending, breaking and cracking. Plus they're light.

I second the Odyssey motion, but out of your two picks I would personally go with the Fit's just because I don't like Shadow. I don't think many people have had them long enough to give an honest review yet though.

This! Front brake brethren!

Ive run 4 sets of 41thermal forks in the past 4 years. No complaints yet.

Those shadows are my favorite though. If they had front mounts i would buy the lot. IC dropouts, oversized crown and weld area, postweld heat treated, and 26mm offset. Sounds like the perfect fork to me.

Yeah that's why I was considering the inceptive fork due to the new features it has with IC dropouts and etc...

Investment cast dropouts haven't proven to be any stronger than traditional dropouts. I'd go as far to say the Fit dropouts would be stronger. Plus the King Crown thing is probably bullshit because I'm pretty damn sure it has less weld area than Odyssey and Fit forks. And as I've said before on this forum, not all heat treatments are the same. I'd really go with the Fits on this one if you have to choose between the two.
