    Gusset, DMR trail blade or what?

    Getting a new fork. I have ridden suspension at the park but am tired of the huge weight penalty. I have a dented dmr fork that has been fine but I since Black Market is sending me the "first" retail bought Edit 1 frame this week, it's time to consider a new fork.

    So, I think I want to go with a 20mm rigid, since I have a 20mm wheelset to use. I like the look of a straight blade fork but don't care enough to buy one just for looks.

    So.. Gusset, DMR or what?

    By the way, I am a heavy dude. 240 on a light day. And I am fairly aggressive.

    +1 on the identiti

    I rode the Rebate 14/20 on a bike for awhile. The bonus was I could use pegs on a 20mm hub without funky self- modifications. It was heavier than other rigid forks available. But I'd recommend it especially for bigger people.

    wound up with the identity rebate 10mm. i tried the 20mm but didn't want to buy a new set of wheels. I already run 10mm solid axles on my xt hubs anyway so stiffness has never been an issue. I have had a dmr before and the quality if the identity seems to be way better.

    I use a DMR Trailblade and I love it. A lot of my friends use: 32 FLOAT 100 FIT CTD w/Trail Adjust Bike Fork | FOX for a suspension fork and they are only 3 - 3.5lbs depending on what model you get. I really want these and they lock out too.
