    Got A Wheel, Need A Fork

    Another member hooked me up with a wheel, now I need a fork. I am on a budget and am looking for something used. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would prefer something that would allow me to run either V or Disc brakes. Have been checking out the Rock Shox Tora lately. Thanks.

    It's either a 98 or 99 Giant Rincon, 23" frame.

    Has V-Brakes if that matters. Would consider switching to a front disc if needed, but would like to keep the V-brakes to save some money.

    For forks - white brothers, or old Marzocchi 29er forks would be about all I can think of that are V-brake compatible.

    If you're not afraid of Rigid check out Soul Cycles they have a 29r fork with V lugs for 60

    The Soul Cycles fork rides pretty nice.

    It would help a ton to know the exact frame you are trying to convert though. Some forks will be better suited for various frames depending on geometry numbers.
