    Looking for a rigid 29er fork, not finding one with the specs I need...

    I've been looking for a rigid fork, steel or carbon, with a 465/470 A to C and either 15mm or 20 mm TA.

    Here's why:
    I have a wheelset (Pewter Chris King hubs, Arches) which I'd like to use on my wife's bike (Soma Juice) so I can get my wheelset back from her.

    Problem is that the front hub is set up for 15mm TA, LBS says that this hub can be converted to 20mm TA, but not to 9mm QR. I've researched extensively, but had no joy on finding either a fork that will work, or any kind of 3rd party conversion kit for the hub to convert it to 9mm QR.

    I'm not too interested in using a suspension fork as the smooth trails she rides doesn't warrant it - no need to add the weight and complexity.

    I'm hoping I've just overlooked some option here... :-)

    EDIT: 1 1/8 steerer tube needed for the Juice frame

    I knew it! I did overlook an option - I'd looked and the QR CroMoto, but missed the Maxle item.

    Many thanks!

    Thanks StevoB, unfortunately the RDO only appears to be offered in a tapered version - the Juice requires 1 1/8. Sorry, thought I had put that in the OP.
