    Steel Rigid Fork

    I just snapped up one of the Zion 660ebb frames from JensonUSA, but the matching forks were all gone. Any know where I can get an inexpensive steel rigid fork with disc tabs? The Zion fork was 457mm crown to race...sounds kind of tall to me. Maybe a 440mm or so might work.

    Thanks in advance.

    Check out Universal's selection -- I have one of the Dimension forks on my Xtracycle.

    Try the nashbar steel fork. http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...%20ATB%20Forks

    I have this one on my Zion 660 and I love it. Nice and sturdy and soaks up the bumps as well as a rigid fork can.

    I'm really having fun with the Salsa CroMoto on my 29er. I see there is a 26" version , but I don't know anything about it.
    .

    I may not have the best of everything, but I have the best everything that matters.

    On-One Superlight comes in a 440mm ... with disc only or V brake bosses only or both i think ...

    Quite like it that my forks are 'clean' without the v brake bosses as i use disc brakes ...

    Thanks...

    Thanks for the replys. I will look into each of the options listed in the responses. I looked on ebay but nothing at this time looked like it fit the bill. I looked at the Nashbar fork and it is in the running, especially at the price.

    on-one 440mm axel to crown ...

    btw the rim and tyre shown is a ETRTO 622 size ie 29" so you will have a lot of room for a 559 or 26" rim.

    Bikeman.com has a good selection of rigid forks. I also like the Salsa or a Kona P2, although neither feature the A/C you are looking for.
