    fork for 29"monocog 29er

    I'm 6'7" 310 and been riding this bike for 3 weeks. The wheels are still true. So far so good.

    However, my hands, wrist, elbows and shoulders are killing me because of the rigid fork. I need a clyde worthy front shock. Possibly dbl coil spring?

    Something basic does not need to be lite at my weight just bullet proof.




    What should I get????

    I've got a rigid 29er fork because the current suspension forks dont' meet my needs. Now that Marzocchi is out of the game, you're down to two manufacturers. RS Reba - dual air. White brothers makes two dual air 29er forks. One of which has a 20mm thru axle (interesting as it implies the fork may be clyde worthy - at the cost of a new wheel).

    29er forum hashes this out every few weeks. I also think you may find a few frankenfork ideas as well.

    Good luck and please post your review.

    Edit - I checked speedgoat out and am now semi-interested in the WB forks.

    Looks like the inertia valve fork does have a 20mm TA option. Intriguing. Now to go find some reviews to see if that valve works for SSers.
