Why would you put a rigid fork on there?

Any particular reason? I just find it strange that you wouldn't like suspension.

great frames, i really wanted one of these when i was selling them but i already had the 07 clockwork special edition and couldn't justify another bike.

ride nice, look cool, win win. 8)

i like the idea of the rigid fork though, are you gonna get the Orange fork or Pace? or something else?

Agree the f9 would be a paint match as well??

Although would it not be better to think about a poplok or saving your rigid fork money and selling the toras and get somthing a bit lighter with a poplok. You then have a instant rigid fork, save a bit of weight but still the option of bounce if you needed it.

How many of these did they do was also 200 as with the 07 clockworks?

No real reason just find sus forks overkill for the kind of riding I do.
Have been thinking about a pace or maybe a nice steel fork :)

Yes I think there were 200 made, this one is number 165

I have decided on some 440mm a-c pace rc31 forks, can't wait to get them on, I love fully rigid bikes :twisted:

Looks sweet! Pace RC31 forks on a P7 or Prestige are an awesome combination imo.
