    Recommend a Cheap Rigid Fork for Commuting

    I'm looking for a cheaper lightweight rigid fork for commuting on my Giant hardtail. Currently, I'm using a Rock Shox Dart 2 fork which doesn't have a lockout feature.

    I would also be opened to cheap lightweight suspension forks with lockout options.

    Kona Project Two forks are fairly light and only about $70. Available for cantilevers or discs and different lengths too. Only one set of eyelets.

    My LBS had a Surly rigid fork for about $80.00 that looked pretty nice.

    Surly 1x1 fork can be had for about $55 for canti only, a little over $60 for disc/canti.

    I've got one on my commuter, simple and light.

    Take that Dart apart and replace the springs with aluminum tubing... full lockout on the cheap.
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)
