    Your current fork is likely this one:
    Details*- SR SUNTOUR Cycling

    Looks like you are seeking a rigid carbon fork? If so, seems like you have a straight (non-tapered steerer).

    I wouldn't invest the money IMO.

    From the best I can tell from the little infomation we have, tha fork has an axle to crown lenght of 467mm. This one here has an axle to crown lenght of 470 in the 29" version so it would probably work.

    Pretty sure you need to provide more information to fit your bike.

    I have no idea how this fork performs. I was basicly showing you an example for what to look for. I have never used a carbon fork nor have any desire to do so. I prefer a good suspension fork myself.

    I will not recommend anything from aliexpress. too much substandard trash on there. makes it difficult to find the legitimately decent stuff.

    Better to order from chain reaction (UK) or one of the German mail order sites like bike24 (but there are others).

    this is what matters- forks are not really wheel size-specific. they have a length to accommodate for the length of the old fork and a width for the tire size. that's a small tire, so you really don't need to worry about clearance with any mtb fork.

    also, a few countries refer to that bike as a "28-inch." to most American readers, that's a 700x35 tire, a common size on hybrids. so what you want is a rigid hybrid fork with disc brake tabs.

    most of the worthwhile forks on the market are going to cost almost as much as your whole bike. anything cheaper than that is going to be of questionable quality.

    Which neatly brings us back.

    I hope my comment clarified the "why" for that advice. I didn't want OP to think we were just being bike snobs about that particular bike. it's not that putting a rigid carbon fork on a hybrid is a bad idea, it's just very expensive compared to the rest of the bike.

    there should be some good steel fork options that would make more sense. A Surly 1x1 might be too short, but most forks are much longer than that.

    Good point. In retrospect I didn't give any explanation for the comment.

    I agree that a steel fork would make more sense for this bike.

    Something like this, the Salsa CroMoto Grande Rigid 29" Fork. You can get it with a straight steerer and A-C 468mm.

    Where can i find carbon fork for my 28" touring bike?-82473.jpg

    I have owned several and consider these one of the better production steel forks for the money. About $130 new, but also see them used on Ebay and Pinkbike on a regular basis.
