    Can my Jamis Komodo be a rigid SS?

    I recently had a friend give me a Jamis Komodo frame and Ive been looking at it wanting to turn it into a single speed bike to thrash around town and something I could leave locked up and not worry about too much.
    I keep looking for a nice front suspension for but everything decent seems to cost 300 dollars and is more than I want to put into this toy.

    Im wondering if I can install a rigid fork onto this frame and have the geometry be ok. I think the frame is actually designed for a 120mm travel fork.
    Also if there is a good deal of a fork out there that I havent looked at Id love to hear it. I looked at the splice, axel, black and after reading reviews on them I just got scared about their performance.

    Thanks for the help.

    A rigid Surly or Kona rigid will run you @$60. They're adjusted for suspension, but not sure if they're compatible w/a 120mm. Check the manufacturers websites or deal with someone bike bikeman.com and they should be able to answer all of your questions and sell you what you need.
