    Steel fork with canti post

    I'm looking for another fork for my Karate Monkey. Current fork is fine, but a little harsh. I was going to try out a Midge bar, but the steerer is just a little too short, so instead of buying a new KM fork, just wondering if I should look at any others. Can't really seem to find any with canti mounts. (I run v brakes).

    Kinda tough to find V-brake stuff these days. You might look for an older Redline Monocog or On One Inred fork, but I doubt those would be any less harsh than your KM fork or a new Ogre fork. You could run a front cable disc brake pretty easily since cable discs use the same levers as V-brakes. That would give you more choices for forks.

    Agreed. I have an old Brown Monocog fork thats not getting used... yours if you cover shipping, but I don't remember "forgiving" as an attribute of it. Stiff fork, just needed a big tire!
