    where to buy a cheap 26" rigid disc fork??

    I gave my dart3 to my little sister for her first mtn bike, and now I am in need of a cheap, cheap fork. I figured rigid would be cheapest. 80-100mm suspension corrected, 26" disc for a sette reken frame.
    any suggestions?? thanks.

    keep an eye on ebay... there's always a ton of rigid forks on there. i got a used kona project 2 (disc only) on there last year for under $30 shipped. there's a very light new mosso carbon and aluminum one on there for $100 shipped too (can't speak for quality, but what i've read has been positive)

    i also see a LOT of entry-level suspension forks selling for way under $100 on ebay... i especially see a lot of older rock shox judys, marzocchi dirt jumpers, and generally scuffed up forks. i wouldn't expect a whole lot of performance out of them, but for example i bought a minty 1998 Judy XC off ebay last month for about $30, overhauled it, and now it works like it did when it was brand new (mediocre lol)

    Get on a local forum. Someone probalably has one off a rigid single speed to get rid of.

    If you go the ebay suspension route, look for a u-turn pysylo. Should be able to get one for less than $100 shipped, and good forks for the money.

    What are you wanting to spend? Typically speaking a new Rigid fork will run you the same cost as a Dart 2.

    steel

    I'd go for a cromoly fork - it will have some "give" whereas an aluminum fork will not.

    Dimension makes inexpensive rigid cromoly forks - also Performance/Nashbar house-brand. A Kona Project 2 would be pretty sweet though.

    I have an unused steel Zion rigid fork sitting around in my garage. I'm pretty sure Zion was Jenson's house-brand since I've never seen them anywhere else. Bought about a year ago for a project bike but went with a suspension fork instead. It's gloss white with disc tabs only (no v-brake bosses). The axle-to-crown measurement is 457mm. PM me if you're interested.
