    Default Alpha Q CX Replacement Fork

    Just an FYI but the shop I work at sells Felt. Replacement forks have come is a few flavors but we did receive a number of Alpha Q CX's - quite a bit nicer than the original fork. I don't know that this recall affected anyone on the forum but if you have an F1X and haven't replaced the fork yet, get on it!
