I need some help working out some forks, I know this is not retro but I some help as I am trying to sort out my wife's bike for her, At present she has a 63mm Suspension for (suntorour Nex4110) And they are dreadful, And very heavy, I have managed to talk her into Rigid.

Now I have a issue do i need to fit Suspension corrected forks or can I get away with something around 395mm - 400mm Crown to Axle length.

The bike is a Halcyon Albany Trekking Comfort Framed Bike (I Know But she love's it).

Any help would be really great
Cheers
Rich

Just measured a pair of judy xc's which are 63mm travel and they come in at 414mm. Myself i would look for something around the 410mark. I maybe wrong and talking out my bum, but thats what i would go with.
