Morning all....

I've got a '99 Marin Eldridge Grade. Going to tweak it to suit my riding. Single speed + rigid fork.

At the moment it comes with Answer Manitou Spyder R, 3.15" travel.

What rigid fork would you recommend?

Cheers

Simon

Have a look at the EXotic carbon forks, from Carboncycles.cc
Probably a 410-420mm a/c fork is a good fit.

Ive run a pair for the past couple of years on my singlespeed, ridden all winter. They have lasted with no flaking or cosmetic deterioration. Compared to a Kona P2 they are the same weight as the triple butted version, but take a bit more of the buzz out of things.

+1 for the carbon Exotics.I`ve run one the last few years and used it every week of this summer with zero issues.
