    Forks, I need a fork

    I have an On One 456. I broke a fork dropout (no good story here, noticed it loading in onto car). and now need a fork around 140 mm (+-10mm) with 15mm TA.

    I am not seeing many selections and was hoping someone had an idea. forks I see are 500 or more and that is a lot for an old bike like this.

    Thanks

    If it's tapered, use any 27.5 fork.

    If it's straight, I have a used revelation rlt titanium I could part with, buts it's a 20mm axle.

    Fox made the float RLC in 140mm with a 15mm TA. You will probably want to setup a search for one though, they're not super common these days. If you had a decent fork, you may be able to find replacement lowers for it as well.

    I'd get a rigid fork if you want to stick with that frame, plenty of 440-480 A2C forks that would work well.

    Might want to look at discounted 650B stuff to run 26" with.
    You could have picked up a Deedar and a 650B Factory 34 for around seven hundred from Planet X last year.

    edit: jestep and TGP have the best idea, if you can get parts--Fix it.

    Looks like that bike has a straight head tube (non tapered). I assume it's 1 1/8"? Yeah, not many options. I know you're looking for ~140mm, but have you looked at Rockshox's Recon Silver TK (current model)? Available in 1 1/8 straight, air spring with rebound adj and lockout. I think there's a remote lockout option for it. It's advertised as a 100mm, but it's easy enough to remove spacers to get 120mm (or add to go to 80mm... not sure why, but whatever). Docs for that available from SRAM. I use this fork on a '03 Fisher Sugar 3+ at 120mm. Not a bad fork for $250 (JensonUSA). It's actually been good at smoothing little stuff and resisting bottom outs on the hard hits. 32mm stanchions, BTW.

    Many RockShox forks are built with interchangeable parts. Assuming you have a RockShox fork, you can simply find lowers that will slide right onto the uppers. For example, I put the lowers of a 27.5 Sektor on my 26 1-1/8 straight tube Recon. As a bonus, I got more tire clearance.

    ^^This, just replace the lowers though that is fraught with its own difficulties.

    Rockshox Sektor. Great fork for that bike. Got the coil DPC for my 2005 Kinesis frame when I rebuilt it a year ago.

    150/120mm, 1 1/8" Steerer, QR15, 32mm stanchions.

    It's basically the same as the Rockshox Pike 26" when it was a 32mm stanchion fork... Only smoother.
