I'm looking for a rigid not too heavy crmo fork to fit my plexus.
1 1/8" steerer with a length of 170-180mm without thread. Any color will do.

Anyone?

Have a look on ebay uk.
A company called Bankrupt and Surplus have some for £2.99 plus post.
I just bought some and they are 970g and quite sturdy. The paint finish make me think they are Diamond Back originally.

Value for money; they are untouchable!

Give me a week or so and I'll have my Explosif up and running and can tell you!

In all seriousness, they are one of the most popular rigid forks for a reason, but I think they're on the stiffer rather than comfier side of things...

My plexus is one of the latest one's (approx. '99/2k), with a 1 1/8" steerer.
But sharp notice ;)
