    decent 80mm front fork?

    I'd like to keep it under 4 lbs, but I'm cheap so.............

    It will be going on a Bianchi SASS single speed. I'm riding rigid right now.

    depends on how much you want to spend... and what you weigh...

    supposidly the RS tora 318 solo air is about 4.5lbs... i'm using the 29er version and am very happy with it... nice and stiff but not light weight

    the '09 reba is supposed to be as stiff if not stiffer then the '08 or earlier tora... and weighs a lot less...

    from what I read though if you want REAL stiffness up there go with a 20mm TA

    sorry i don't have much experiance with the bouncy parts on bikes... just got my 1st one from years of rigid.
