Hi good folk.

I have a '03 Blizzard frame (19.5") ... and it's missing a fork.

I would like to use a rigid fork ... can I please have your advice? (axle to crown length, or any particular fork model I can type into 'MTB wanted')

Thanks in advance.

Best. Frank

I have the same frame and same size, still a great rider! Bulletproof tubing and very nice handling! I believe it was build for forks with 80mm travel or maybe even less. I have it mounted with 100mm travel and that's a bit too much to be honest. See the pics in my build thread. A white rigid fork should look great but I'm not really aware on which axle to crown length you should go for. I would guess in the range of 450mm.
