Hi,

I'm looking for a rigid fork for my Sunn Vertik, with an AC of something round 425mm

Any advice at all?

Tim

425 is about as long as you want to go, the bike will likely feel better with something around the 410 mark. IIRC the Sunn originals were 395 (and pop up relatively regularly over here, at least, at fairly reasonable prices)

Otherwise, P2s.

Great!

Thanks a lot for the info. I’ve been obsessing with getting something longer because the suspension fork I have on is longer and I assumed I’d need suspension corrected.

To be honest I’ve never found any info regarding the original Sunn rigid forks, so it’s interesting to hear they were 395mm.

Very good!

On with the hunt,

Thanks
