    27.5in Rigid Fork options

    I am planning on building a Kona Explosif up and I would like a rigid fork option. Are there any 27.5 tapered rigid forks that are boost with 15mm thru axles? I want to be able to swap between a 120mm Pike and a rigid fork. I don't want to go custom as I am trying to keep the cost of this build down initial by doing a rigid single speed then later adding a suspension fork and a multigear setup.

    It looks like Pike 120mm a2c is 512mm, and with 20% sag it would be 488mm.

    If you want to keep the length of the rigid fork close to the sagged height of a 120mm 27.5" fork, the best options are probably 29er or 29+ forks.

    For example: Surly Krampus 110 steel fork is 483mm a2c

    Thanks. That looks like it should work.

    It looks like the KM or a Niner steel fork should work too.
