    Rigid Fork Suggestions

    I'm scouring the webs for a rigid fork with close to the correct axle-crown length. Hoping someone here points me to something I haven't come across yet. Bonus points for a Canadian company, but still full points for North American. What I'm looking for...

    Open to carbon, but I'd prefer steel(economical and durable)
    1 1/8" threadless - no taper
    100mm QR9 axle
    415-440mm axle-crown
    V-brake or disc, preferably both.
    <$200

    Thanks for your help!

    Bikeman probably has what you're looking for
    Bikeman: Rigid Mountain Fork

    I'll bet Surly and Soma have one too.

    I have a Carbon Cycles Exotic Alloy XC rigid fork. Mine is disc specific but they have them in just about every spec you can imagine. Based on your requirements I think the part numbers you are looking for are CC-F0225 for carbon or CC-F0125 for AL. The carbon fork is within your budget, my AL fork was around $110 shipped. I have been happy with it, seems to be well made with great fit/finish.

    Pop a wooden dowel in place of your airspring and damper cartridge. $5 rigid fork!

    Not rim brake, disk only, but here's a Brodie, I think they're still Canadian.

    In my opinion, doesn't look too bad either! For some reason, can't find steerer size info...

    Surly Troll fork comes with disc and v-brake posts, 1 1/8" no taper, and 420mm A-C for $125
    https://surlybikes.com/parts/troll_fork

    The Bridge Club and Ogre are also options if you don't mind not having v-brake posts, though the A-C of the Ogre is a bit longer than you are looking for. I ran the Ogre on a 26" bike for a couple of years and liked it.

    Great suggestions, thank you. I'm not a huge fan of the square look(almost like a rigid fork trying to mimic a suspension?) but more something like this.

    https://www.somafabshop.com/shop/pro...3?category=975

    They have a 26" - 440mm- model but it's curved and I'm not sure that's the look I'm going for. That Surly Troll fork is an ugly little beast and a bit hefty, but I do like their stuff.

    I may have an old Kona P2 somewhere, but not the nice triple-butted version. It has v-brake posts but no disc tabs

    Smile Carver 26er steel rigid fork

    Iíve been using this on my 2001 Trek 4900 after I replaced the Rock Shox Judy TT... I love it. Clean, light, simple.
