    Straight steerer 27.5 forks

    Hey everyone,

    Looking for 100mm 1 1/8" 27.5 forks. So far all I've been able to find is the reba 100mm with a 9mm. Not interested in manitou or magura, Looking for more options and preferably a 15mm. I saw someone post on their p650b build that they had put a fox RLC 100, But i can't seem to find the same one. Can someone give me any insight on more options?

    MRP Loop SL

    Loop SL — MRP

    When they were still a separate company, White Brothers had a few more options with a straight 1 1/8" steering tube. If you're looking used you may want to search for a White Brothers Loop instead of MRP. May get more results. The forks are basically the same, the company just dissolved under the MRP name.
    The cake is a lie.

    I don't know for sure that Fox made a st steer 650b/27.5 specific fork.
    I do know from experience that the 26" models in both Float and Vanilla 9qr/15ta will fit these wheel sizes with "most" brand tires in the 2.0-2.35 size. YRMV

    Formula has implied you can run them in their 26" 33 forks but I tried with a CrossMark and found it not to be true having clearance problems with tires buzzing arch/crown. Nicer fork with 120 travel and a 15mm t/a but off it came.
    Wait whuuut, who did he tell you that!?!?....

    A Lefty Max 140 with either a C'Dale or Project 321 adaptor.
    My name is Chris and I ride a Prophet 650b with a Lefty.

    X-fusion? Velvet maybe? fits a 650b up to 2.4.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Easy to reduce the travel on a Lefty. Just 3 10mm spacers will cut it down to 110mm.

    Once you say Lefty, three quarters of them get glazed eyes and wander away.

    [QUOTE=NKarolewicz;12210114]Hey everyone,

    Looking for 100mm 1 1/8" 27.5 forks.

    Funny you should ask. I'm actually selling the fork I had on my xc bike this last summer. It's an MRP (formerly White Brothers) Loop SL. 100mm with a puck to reduce it to 80mm. 15mm thru axle and the important part, it has a 1 1/8" steer tube. I have it listed on another site.
