    26" Rigid fork

    So, I'm thinking about making my xenia rigid. I don't know what came over me, but i just think it'd be really awesome (maybe painful as well). What are some good options as far as a rigid fork for a 26" bike that can take an absolute thrashing. Also, where could I purchase this fork?

    identiti bikes makes the rebate rigid. works with 26". comes in 3 models (jump- for regular QR hubs disc mounts, park- for either QR or 14mm hubs but no disc mounts, 1420- for 20mm thru axle hubs or 14mm hubs disc mounts. All of the forks can be used with v brakes, you just have to get the bolt on adapters.

    DMR makes the Trailblade2. It comes in in 3 models. 20mm, 14mm or QR. no disc on the 14mm. no v-brake option for any of them.

    Funn Stiffy
    DMR Trailblade

    Planet X Knifen Lite. I had one on my Echo Urban. solid fork, stiff for a qr/bolt-on axle, but funky looking to most, didn't bother me though. but for street/dj/park, no trials, I'd recommend the above mentioned ones over the PX.
