    Where could I find a rigid fork online?...

    ...already checked a few spots like Beyond Bikes, Jenson, REI, MTBR classifieds, Ebay, and no luck. Anyone know of any places online that have rigid forks for mountain bikes?

    I busted the stock fork on my entry level Trek which I have had for a little over a month, girlfriend is getting me a new fork for my birthday in July. Figured I would try a rigid fork for a month or so for the hell of it. Any color, any brand, really doesn't matter to me.

    Thanks,
    ...iC...

    I would try the LBS first though. I picked up a slighty used Tange from my shop for around $10.

    Good luck....

    I got a Kona Project 2 at Bikeman for about $60. Nice fork, but no disc tabs. Also just got a nice, slightly used Specialized Direct Drive fork at the LBS for a 12pack of Sierra. These guys speak my language. Check with your LBS first. Otherwise, like other mentioned, Webcyclery and Bikeman. Both great to deal with.

    Had this dilemma myself....

    ...a few months back. Was building up a townie on one of the $49 Nashbar Cromo frames and wanted an inexpensive rigid fork for it. Went down to the ol' LBS and they had a big box of old rigids that they had changed out for suspension forks. Owner of the shop let me rummage through it where I found an almost new GT which he charged me $10 for. The bike turned out real nice, cost about $180 all told.
