    26" fork needed

    Does any one have a rigid 26" v brake non threaded 1 1/8 steer tube up for trade? trying to monster something back together.

    If you check ebay, there are some great prices on the nice Suntour forks. My son got the carbon one on sale half price, and it is awesome. Might pick up one or my 2 26ers. By the way, took my old 26er out in the thaw slop, and had such a great time on it, I'm going to set it up singlespeed. Have one of those shimano tensioners but you have to adjust chainline with washers where you bolt it to the frame? It was only $10, so not a big deal. Guess I'll pick up a Paul.

    ^ If you get a Melvin, you can run 3 rings up front (22-32-42) and run the 26er as a 3 speed if you choose. It will handle a twenty tooth difference and can also be used to set up a FS as a SS. Pretty cool piece, I just picked one up for christmas and will be putting it to use this spring when I build up my new 26 SS wheels.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    You may certainly find a fork in 'bay, but buyer beware on some of the used forks. How old a bike are you thinking of rebuilding? What travel was the original fork?

    Also, if you have Netflix you may want to check out a show "The Toys that Made Us", the 3rd episode is all about Adam...

    Iíve got an old Kona Project 2 26Ē fork laying around. Not sure how much steer tube is on it but itís V-brake and in pretty good condition. Iíd trade for almost anything.

    If still needed I have a Kona Project 2 26"er fork, really like new as I only used it for a couple of rides before I found the original stock for for my retro-bike. Let me know.
