    Hi, you might consider getting a good steel cyclocross fork for cheap, and asking spicer to add disc tabs. Otherwise, TETcycles lists $175 for a fork made to your liking.

    Try this: Dimension 1" cross disk at Bikeman 55 stones may just work for you, but not sure on the total tire clearance.

    Lots of clearance

    here's a shot of the dimension used on a 29" build [700c wheel]
    this fork will do the job well

    Spicer-mod or Kelly

    No one makes a production 1" fork with disc tabs except for a couple of cyclocross forks, which may or may not have enough tire clearance for your application. You can have Gene modify a non-disc fork, or Kelly will build you one for about $220.

    Try www.aebike.com

    They used to carry some 1" rigid forks with disk mounts, if not go the Spicer way. Gene is a great person to deal with.
