    Looking for a rigid lightweight disc fork with low A-to-C?

    Hi, I am after a new disc fork for my commuter bike and am probably looking for the unattainable but if anyone could recommend one without a ridiculous price tag ($400) it would be appreciated.

    My current disk fork has an axle to crown length of 410mm, but I would like to go lower, but it seems impossible to find one out there.

    I'm after...
    -Rigid
    -Disc only
    -A to C <390mm
    -Lightweight <800g
    -1 1/8"
    -Fit 29/700c

    Do they exist?

    Cheers

    You are talking road bike lengths, maybe cyclocross... what sort of tires do you want to use? Short forks get pretty tight in tire clearance. It is not just the width but the height too

    A trials fork maybe?

    ...but I doubt they are all that light.

    It's essentially a road frame, so please forgive me for posting here, my bike is an odd setup.

    Found the Identiti fork earlier on but it is 1100g+, I don't really want such a heavy fork for purely commuting.
