OK, so I recently bought my second 1996 Cannondale Tandem and am needing to get a suspension fork for it. I know there are tandem specific forks available, but I would like to find a cheap solution safe for gravel rounds and light singletrack, before I invest big bucks in a dual crown fork. My stoker will be my wife or kids, and I hate to spend a ton of money on a fork-20mm wheel-disc combo only to find I have no one to ride with.
I was thinking of getting a U-Turn Rock Shox Tora ($200.00) and seeing how much I ride the bike before upgrading to a dal crown-disc-20mm hub system. The fork has V-brake bosses, so no need for a disc yet. I like the U-turn on this, (85-130 mm), so I can figure out how much travel this bike can handle.
Anyone try a Tora on a tandem? Max team weight will be 310#, bt I will often be riding with my kids so team weight will be 260#.
As an aside - any other forks with v-brake bosses which are still sold?
