    Rigid fork or new bike

    Hello. I own a 2011 Revel 0. Turns out that I ended up not riding trails. I pretty much ride paved roads with my wife, she on her hybrid. I was considering swapping the suspension fork for something rigid to sort of Hybridize the Revel. Was looking at the Surly 1x1 but am open to suggestions.

    In my search I came across the Giant Anyroad bike. It looks like a comfortable mix of a road bike and a hybrid. The Revel seems to be outfitted better component wise.

    Does it make more sense to just swap bikes or to go with the rigid fork on the Revel.

    I am riding mostly for pleasure and fitness.

    Thanks.

    I would go for a rigid fork. That way if you ever want to get back into offroad you have a fork available. They can be picked up relatively cheap.

    Thanks. That's the way I decided to go. I ordered the Surly 1x1 fork and a pair of Ergon grips. I'll start with that and see where I end up.

    Thanks again.
