Ive owned this bike longer than any other, Ive had/have lots of bikes. I did try to sell this a couple of times but it seems we are not yet to be parted. :)

Anyway, since these photos I made myself a single speed shopper out of it but I dont want that big heavy fork on it. I ditched the Judy T2 it came with years ago.

I would prefer a really simple rigid fork for it can anyone suggest something that would fit the bill?

I often see older builds stripped down with a rigid fork, but where to source one?

Cheers.

I've got RC31s on mine.
Funnily enough I've just finally managed to get some M950 shifters so it'll be up and running again soon.

The rock shox disc is getting dumped too for something that works


Love the colours of yours.
