Crikey I'd forgotten that Manitou made rigid forks originally!

Somewhere I've an v.old MBUK where they 'test' lots of rigid forks!
PACE were the best I seem to recall (with which I wouldn't disagree), although would like to get hold of some real bontrager forks one day.

AXCD are chinese. cheap & lite, but no idea on quality.

Do a search on Extreme (as in the forks on an extreme punisher frameset). they were by far the most overbuilt & friggin massive rigid forks ever made

"I'd forgotten that Manitou made rigid forks originally" Gaf hasnt ;D
