    26" Carbon Rigid 1" Threadless Fork???

    Hello,

    Has anyone seen such a beast? I've been looking around and have not come across a fork like this yet.

    Another option I was wondering about is a carbon cyclocross fork? I've seen them in 1" threadless. Anyone think a cyclocross fork would work?

    The bike's steel w/ canti's, and will be more of a commuter with some light XC riding too.

    OK. I thought this was the place to post the question since the bike's mid-90's and 1" steerer tube.

    Thanks,

    The problem with a cyclocross fork will be tire clearance. Most CX forks are limited to a 45mm tire or less.

    By the time full-carbon forks were becoming available all mountain bikes had 1-1/8" steerers, so finding a full-carbon 1" MTB is gong to be difficult.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    These are the only carbon forks I'm aware of with a 1" steerer. 425mm A to C distance should work ok for mid 90s suspension corrected geometry.

    good point ... meant to expand on my decision making process...

    I was about to buy a carbon fork and rethought it...
    all the 1" carbon forks I saw had steel steerer tubes and would probably have been a compromise as far as geometry, without much weight/performance difference if any... so went custom and old school...


    ... and it is an ingredient in steel!
