    100-120mm suspension corrected forks options

    Ive done the search on MTBR, and have ran across some older threads, but...

    I am in search of options for rigid forks that will replace a suspension fork of 100 - 120mm.

    This is for a Voodoo Soukri. Frame designed around 100 - 120 of suspension

    I am aware of the voodoo zombie 500, but was wondering if their was anything else out there.

    Thanks in advance

    The Niner Reynolds fork comes in a 490mm length. I'm too lazy to check if they still make them or not.

    The leverage you're putting on that frame with a 120mm corrected 29er rigid is something to think about. There are a few custom builders that no longer warranty a 29er frame using a suspension corrected rigid fork as they can cause frame breaks easier (soulcraft is the one that comes to mind...I know of one other that's thinking of adopting the same policy. I've actually made the promise to my builder to not use a rigid fork...it's designed for 120mm)

    Obviously there are many people that get away with it fine on 80-100 corrected, but I think 120mm corrected may be pushing it. Just something to think about for your safety.

    If the frame is designed for a 100-120 suspension fork, it will be fine with a rigid fork corrected for 120mm.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    This is what im looking for as far as recommendations of company / people who are making 100mm corrected forks. Doesn't seem to be too many of them...

    The Soul Cycles Dillinger fork is a 100mm suspension corrected fork (485mm).

    I just picked one up for a neighborhood beater bike build.

    I actually got it off of their website 2 weeks ago; probably right before they pulled it down (an upgrade is coming soon I think). It is a raw steel clear coat fork and was listed as blemished so I got free shipping. I'm not sure what they call "blemished" but it looks like a torched steel fork to me.

    It cost me $79 shipped.

    You should give them a call if are wanting to buy.
