I've had this lying around forkless for a few months now.http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... +ti+vit+t2
My intention is to build it up as a singlespeed initially. I have really been struggling to find a fork that I like. I'm undecided as to whether to go rigid or get me some suspension.
I'm always on the lookout for some F7s and I will go with the rigid option if I do ever manage to luck out and snag me a decent pair but to be honest I would prefer to stick some suspension forks on the front as all my other bikes are fully rigid. The problem is I have no idea what is good...
I think the RC35 and 36s look great but I'm always dead worried about the hardiness of them. I'd also be fine with some modern forks but of course the geometry has to be right. I'll be running Vs so will need canti bosses. Would prefer not to have a disc tab on but if it's unavoidable I wont be too fussed.
Basically I'm after something that is reasonably light and works well. Looks/colour come second but I wont be happy with something really scabby. I have a budget max of £150 ish for the right fork.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me??
