    Rigid forks/Sources in GTA/SWOnt?

    Hey, anyone know of any dealers in the area carrying good, susp. corrected rigid forks? I'm especially interested in the U.K. Pace carbon fork, but it seems this isn't distributed in N.A. -- so 2d question: has anyone on here had any luck obtaining one from a U.K. dealer (Pace won't sell direct into Canada)?
    Cheers for any replies.

    Check out Aerolite. The website isn't the best, but the Ti forks work really well!

    Here is mine....

    how do you like that fork? I remember seeing those guys at the show last year and drooling on their glass counter over all the Ti bits and pcs

    I like it... no problems so far. It looks good and it works fine. The only caveat would be the lack of "lawyer tabs" on the drop outs.

    Definitely an XC fork however.

    SSteel and TT: thanks a lot for the replies; I'm going to check with Wiggle in the UK re the Pace. SSteel: that fork looks the business -- can't find the axle-crown spec on the website; do you happen to know what it is? I need 435mm minimum, pref. 440.
    Cheers.

    My fork is 435mm axle-to-crown. I know they make different versions and different ratios; some v-brake, some disc only and some a combination.
