Later rigid forks are usually 'suspension adjusted', ie; they are longer than normal ones to match the length of suspension forks.
Would look much better with some Pepperoni forks, and some flat bars, but that's just my opinion, it's your bike, your choice.
Nice white frame though, very clean looking.
I accept that the later 'suspension adjusted' forks are longer.
That's my point - the ones fitted aren't
the longer type.
But you're probably right about Pepperonis and flat bars being the best for looks. That said, I just tried mocking it up with some Pace RC30s and a Fred Salmon flat bar/stem combo and that looks pretty cool too.
Still tempted to get hold of some Peps though...
