    new ridgid fork for for a SS conversion

    Hello all
    I am converting an older Kona blast I have laying around to a SS. Just to try it out.
    Right now it has a junk boat anchor in-sync fork on it.
    I am going to replace it with a rigid fork. I am also thinking steel
    to keep the price in line. I measured the existing for and it has an AC of 440mm

    I am thinking of:
    on one rigid steel
    salsa
    surly

    ???

    any other thoughts? I was thinking of trying to keep it to 150-180 iff possible
    Oh ya I also need disk tabs and it is 1" 1/8, I was also thinking of good tire clearance for a large front tire for winter riding....

    Any thoughts?
    If the single speeding goes well I will most likely upgrade to a steel frame at some point....
    but it is a start.

    i use a zion fork from jensonUSA (i think it was around 80 bucks?)
    works great...bit flexy but i actually like that for it's intended use. using a 160mm rotor no problems. actually looks really good too for whatever thats worth.

    i also have an on-one fork (29er version) and it's a much nicer feeling fork, very light and responsive. much more expensive however...
    what would rainbow unicorn do?
