    27.5 Rigid Fork Options

    Anything available with 15qr and tapered steerer? Would ideally like something similar to the Niner RDO fork but with a shorter A-C length.

    Carver has 410 and 465 A-C, but they are segmented.

    Depending on the length of travel your frame was designed around, the Niner might not be a terrible idea.

    Doh, add Ritchey to the list as well at 465... so close to that Niner's 470 though.

    I'm building my next rigid frame around a Niner carbon fork and 650b wheels. Plenty of clearance.

    I'm just wondering if there are any other options for 27.5" rigid forks nowadays?

    I'm currently building my Cove Hummer 650bj up as a rigid SS for stuff n giggles so I'm looking for options...

    Are you looking for taper? Soma has steel forks. If 1 and 1/8 straight I have a Soma steel fork I would part with for $50 plus shipping.

    I have a Surly Troll fork if that floats your boat. Same price. $50 plus shipping. 8" steerer if my memory serves me well.
