    I'm confused as to how we can help you, but at least we're a friendly lot! Since you're here though, I'll be the first to suggest a Lefty
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    but to be onest with you I prefer normal fork, what about rock shocks reba !!!!!
    with 100mm travel. my problem is how I could know what type of fork fitts to my bike.

    What are the important things that I have to look before buying a fork.

    If you don't have a Cannondale and you don't want a Lefty or Headshok, why ask here? You would have better luck in the fork and shock section of this site, in the Cannondale section, most people know a Lefty is much better so we are biased. I'll still help you though. You should look for a fork with a similar axle to crown distance so you don't mess with your bike's geometry too much, that will also mean similar travel than what you have so look in the 80 to 110mm range. I don't know much about your bike but unless it's really old, you'll probably need a fork with a 1.125" steerer tube. Then look for features you want, some like to have lock-outs, if you have v-brakes, be aware that less and less forks are available with rim brake bosses, especially in the higher end models since rim brakes are on their way to the museeum... Good luck with your research.

    No problems!

    And while Bianchi may be a popular brand in Italia, over here it's a different story. I think they don't export their bikes to Canada anymore, the most recent Bianchi I have seen was a celeste green steel road bike from the 80s...

    Are there many trails in Malta? I recently worked on a movie on MC Escher who spent some time in Malta and had some images from there, very beautiful place.

    Trials

    Yes we have good trials,but we are small country and we are limited. We have short distances but hard uphills.
    In Malta you can find these bike models bianchi , connodale , Kona , treck. These are mostly sold in our country.

    Regrading off road we have quit good paths to explorer and go around. And as a site viewing we have got nice views. Next to use we have a country call Gozo and is very good for up hills because they are short and steep.
