    Rock Solid, XR1.0, or Niner carbon fork for Kona Unit?

    Greetings all!

    Anyone have any opinions one a good carbon fork for a Kona Unit 29er (2011)? Upgrading from the stock P2. I'm 6'5" and about 220. Looking at the following:

    White Brothers Rock Solid (1 year warranty)
    Syncros XR1.0 (2 year warranty)
    Niner Carbon (5 year warranty)

    Has anyone ridden similar combos? Steel frame with any of these forks? Any insights are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I've been rocking the original Niner carbon on my geared hardtail for two years. It's behaved perfectly. That said, it's spendy. I'd look at the Carver carbon forks. I'm running the older style on my Krampus now, and it's great. Looks unique, handles really well, super nice compliance (especially coupled w/ the 3.0 tires . I did have to get the post mounts faced, but it was quick and easy and Forrest Carver worked with me. Way more affordable than the Niner. Not sure about the warranty. No affiliation.
