Okay, so I'm thinking really seriously about taking the plunge on an Air 9 Carbon. Current ride is a Specy Marathon 29er w/ a Fox Float (100mm I believe). I'm really drawn to the visual appeal of the rigid carbon Niner forks, love the way they look on the Air 9 c.
So, my question is this: Would locking out my current fork on my current bike give me ANY reasonable approximation as to what to expect if I go the full rigid route on the Niner? I understand my fork has a "blow off" valve or whatever it's called, but would it be at least somewhat similar? I haven't ridden a fully rigid bike (on dirt) in maybe 18 years.
