As above - looking for 2x pairs of short travel forks for my kids bikes. One set about 70/80mm travel and one up to 100mm. Both QR, ideally the 100mm set would be rim brake compatible and able to be set up for a lightweight rider. Oh and 26" wheels too.

Anything out there?

1.125" and can potentially be quite short as they're going on a 24" kids frame or a tiny Sunn Vertik.

Comes in here asking about short travel forks and puts up a post about Long Travel & Downhill stuff :shock:


Short travel is <40mm, Normal travel is 50/60mm, Long travel is 80mm+ ;-) and that's at a push as everyone knows, Long Travel starts at 60mm.

I guess you should be in the 1998+ era section.. :xmas-wink:

Look at Air forks from early 2000's (modern voodoo era with disc and the like) like SIDs, Fox etc.
Or Bombers from a similar era or very late 90's but you'll need to look for soft springs etc.
