Exotic make some rigid disc forks for non suspension corrected frames: https://www.carboncycles.cc/index.php?p=1641

They make serveral versions, carbon and alloy, with and without rim brake bosses: https://www.carboncycles.cc/index.php?s ... k_selector

I'd second the recommendation on Exotic, super forks.
The ebay ones mentioned above are only high-ten steel, so BSO grade and heavy. OK for a pub bike though and definitely nothing that will shout out to thieves.

Thanks for that, ill keep those in mind, though they are more than 3x the price. And it is only the shopper bike so might even end up with a front carrier :?

Unless its ridiculously heavy its not going to be a real issue, and the fork fitted is likely 501, though likely hi ten itself. Just needing the addition of the disc mount.
