    Rigid Fork Rec For Superfly HT

    For no logical reason whatsoever, I've decided to try a rigid fork on my 08 Superfly hardtail. It will be for xc use. No drops, super rough stuff, etc. I'm near 200 RTR, and reasonably fast. Price matters, but is not the over riding consideration. Being essentially a full-suspension wimp, compliance definitely matters!

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    call up trek and ask them when the bontrager switchblade g2 will be available. you get 5 year warranty + g2 offset. i don't like messing with the mfr's intended geometry. it'll run you $300. since you have a carbon frame, might as well get carbon fork.

    I'd go with the On One (47mm offset) or the Niner fork.

    Thanks for the input. This is new territory for me, so I really appreciate it.

    I maybe should have added to my original post that I run the bike with 100 mm fork travel, and am not really looking to "quicken" its handling at all.
