    new ss buld - rigid a-c newbie questions

    So im building an access 29er frame as an SS conversion and have been searching for a budget friendly rigid fork. I found a voodoo zombie fork but it says 500mm a-c. Im not exactly sure how axle to crown works but will this fork be ok to use with this frame? I typically see a-c in the 400's
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    The axle to crown on my Redline monocog is about 480mm
    480mm forks are used to "replace" 80mm suspension forks.

    A ac of 500mm would be the fork you would use to replace a 29er 100mm travel fork.
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.
