    Carbon Rigid Fork for SL3 29er

    I recently picked up a Trail SL3 29er (SS, rigid) and I'm considering getting a carbon fork. Not looking to spend a whole lot as this will be my budget bike.

    Any suggestions? Are there after market forks available to fit the 1.5" headtube?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm also interested in a fork for the Trail w/1.5" head tube. Bookmarked this thread!

    Cannondale reducer headset (KP058??) + Niner carbon fork.

    I had planned on doing this to my Carbon 2 but the headset arrived after I had sold the bike....

    KP058 wouldn't work with the Trail 29r frames. That headset only works with Cannondales that have integrated headset...i.e. Flash,RZ,Scalpel,Jekyll, etc. You can use a standard 1.5" reducing headset from Cane Creek or FSA on these frames. Nothing proprietary going on here.
