Ok, my build isn't totally dedicated to retro, 2000 Jamaican Gold Klein Attiude, but if I wanted to find some 'appropriate' XC forks for them,, what should I look out for?
Cheers, Carl
PS Have always ridden fully rigid but think its time for some bouncy bits

You shouldn't have to pay that much, should you? OK, for NOS and rare steerer, maybe. I've had three pairs of SIDs, all from STW rather than eBay though, better class of punter.
