i have recently taken delivery of a very nice yeti arc frame, the only thing i have added so far is a chris king headset, and some brake mounts, what to do next, i'm thinking xtr brakes gears & drive. but i'm torn between rigid or bouncy forks. i'm leaning towards pace rc31 rigids.
any idea's ?

Agree, i recon a white Fox fork would look ace, should handle the travel with it being a later frame ?

Great colour scheme 8) , what size is it ?

what fox forks do they do with v brake mounts ? also i would ideally like forks which are adjustable and can lock out.

any good suggestions ?

hi, i had the same issue finding the v brake modern forks.
i found some 02/03 sids. some of the older fox forks (silver 100mm) ones have v mounts.
you could always run a BB7 so you could v at the back (if you must) and then you could have matching cable pull levers.

very nice frame :)

Same here, would increase fork choice, also i'd find the redundant caliper mount more annoying than redundant V brake mounts.

Seems odd to buy a modern frame and want to put V's on it :?
