    New question here. 1'' suspension fork

    I haven't spent any money at my LBS in the last 4 days and im getting anxious. I'm riding an older MB zip so if i were to ever venture away from the zen of riding fully rigid do i have any suspension fork options? So far the only thing i have seen is a Marzocchi Comp xc. Thanks for the help,
    Sam

    I think Pace will still do 1" steerers too although they're probably pricy in the US.

    Bear in mind that your frame probably won't be corrected for suspension forks anyway so you'll likely screw the handling.

    I'd keep that Bridgey pure. Just wait a little longer and save for another used bike that has some front suspension if you want to try it. If you do that, and ride the new one for a while, I guarantee you'll love having the chance to hop back on the Zip for kicks and giggles.

    Just my $.02.

    white brothers will stick a 1" on their forks for a small upcharge. already expensive though but probably the best you can get with a 1"...

    decision

    i think ill keep it rigid for now, seeing as how a new fork would increase the cost of the bike by 40 times or more, and that as Mr. Armstrong reminded me that it is not suspension corrected, and the last thing i won't if a fork that would deminish the bikes performance and be difficult to resell. Thanks again,
    Sam
