    Rigid Mob

    looking for suggestions on rigid forks to run on my Mob for my local bmx track. Hoping to find an axle to crown similar if it was set up w/80mm travel fork. Besides, the BlkMrkt any other alternatives? I'd rather keep it more stable at speed than too quick.

    Identiti sells an XL rigid that has a pretty long A3C.

    The Doberman fork? DMR Trailblade?

    Many rigid forks are suspension corrected.

    Will - it seems a lot of the offerings are set at ~ 430mm a2c. He's looking for a fork with ~460mm a2c.

    I'd take a look into the doberman or blackmarket if I were buying one today.

    crap...I forgot an important detail...what if I wanted to run a 20mil thru axle? Anyone have any experience with those. Reason being I've got a Transition Covert and TransAm that I run thru axls on both. It would be nice to keep 'em all that way. My Atomlabs have the adapters that I can't seem to find or remember to bring!

    if you call up blackmarket (S&M), for little charge they will do custom work. AKA 20mm drops. I do believe dobermann is the same (might be an option for both forks? not too sure..)

    I did speak to the guys at blkmrkt..their fork's the right length a2c but I didn't ask about custom dropouts. I think they'll be putting out a shorter fork for their bikes soon, actually.
    The Identiti sounds like a winner. I think the 460 is the range I need.Thank you gentlemen. Now if I can just find one...
