    Converting suspension bike to fully rigid.

    Hello friends.
    I would like to convert my Giant Sedona with front suspension to fully rigid. So I was wondering if you would have a suggestion on a good light weight front fork.

    The reason why I made this post if mostly because the bike has and old type of headset not the threadless one that is standard now. So I wonder if fork manufacturers make modern design fork for that type of stems,

    I will appreciate your advice.
    Thank you

    Lots of well known companies building quality modern rigid forks out there, but with the exception of full custom, I am unaware of any currently manufacturing a fork you are looking for. There are some new 26" threaded forks on Ebay, but I have no idea of their quality and then there is always the used market. Personally, I would consider converting to a threadless setup.
