    Kona Project 2 vs Surly 1x1 Fork

    Any recommendations on the Kona Project 2 vs Surly 1x1 fork? Putting it on a 22" Surly 1x1. Thanks.

    Ive never ridden the kona, but I ride the surly 1x1 and have no complaints. Plus it looks cool, which of course is the most important factor when deciding which fork to buy.

    i think the p2 is slightly shorter a2c. otherwise, i like the look of a straight blade fork.

    They're almost the same length, Kona is 410mm vs. 413 for the Surly. I think the Kona is a bit lighter, and I like the appearance of the Kona quite a bit cheaper. Bikeman.com has them both.

    The P2 flexxes way more.

    Isn't that kind of the point with the P2? That it flexes enough to take the edge off?

    Can't say enough good things about my P2. That said, if you've got a Surly frame....

    Sorry this post probably hasn't helped at all :-)

    I've never noticed any objectionable flex in my Kona P2. Or any flex at all, for that matter. Then again, I'm light and don't do any big stunts or go for big air, I just ride.

    Comparing flex or ride comfort among rigid forks like this seems kind of silly to me... 3 psi of tire pressure would make more difference.

    The Frank Zappa guy keeps staring at me. I think I must get the Surly. But the P2......

    I only got a few rides from my P2 before it cracked. Kona warranty can take a long, long time. I say go with Surly.
