How Bad could them rigids have been to change them?
Personally I prefer the no shock version, but if you're gonna keep em on please put V,s on the front !

Really nice bike but I'm afraid to say Rumpfy is right... Change to V brakes or better still put the rigid fork back on

The original forks looked a lot better than the replacement forks.

forks received and fitted personally I love it......just a new longer cable for the front brake and cable stop required


You might think I'm an ass....but you're going to get yourself hurt running that fork.

Listen to Pete McC go back to the rigid fork.


I don't think your an ass, I just think you were having a bad day and taking it out on an easy target.....

Re the forks your right, of course the Canti's were a problem, bought a cable stop which helped, but I have since reverted to a V brake, I actually prefer the look of the rigid myself but the bike rides a lot better with the suspension fork (this is my winter commute bike doing 30 miles per day)

You're giving me too much credit. Poking fun at lame bikes is my MO, but I don't want to see anyone get (physically) hurt either.
