    I've got some Orange F8 forks on my P7 and they're pretty nice. Not expensive but well thought out. Matt black only though!

    According to the bulging discs in my back you're not allowed to use nice and rigid in the same sentence. I miss my rigid fork. I used an Exotic before.

    its for a 26 inch wheel the carbon jobs are not really my thing, the orange ones look alright enough. Those niner are very nice but not my wheel size. Origin 8 are they available to UK?

    I run a Vicious Cycles and like it. Before that I had a no name steel fork and liked it as well. I honestly can not tell a difference between these two forks.

    Check out PN# MKM35CD

    Mekko-Saso makes the White, Origin 8, Fetish, Exotic,Lynsky, pretty sure the Shimano Pro fork. Couple of others too. I guess companies just buy them and put their sticker on it. You can get a Saso fork off Ebay Germany.

    I'm curious as to why carbon jobs are not your thing. I've ridden steel and carbon forks and the carbon would be my preference by far - lighter and seem to be more forgiving. They are plenty strong too - I have abused a carbon Pace RC31 for 4 years without any issue (although I did 'retire' it for my Nukeproof for my own piece of mind).

    I have a dimension fork and it has performed just fine. You can send your kid to 1/156th of a college term over what you'd save from the other forks.

    I was looking at some of the carbon forks as replacement for the boat anchor that was on my Kona Unit. After reading some reviews decided to try the Misfit Psycles Aluminum fork. It was cheap and light and got some good press. Surprised how much more complaint it felt vs the steel one that came off. Can't really compare it to carbon though.

    LOVE my Vicious fork. For reference, I ride mostly on rocky/rooty New England trails. Way tougher than I have any right to expect it to be - buttery smooth - still tracks like it's on rails. I'd buy another without batting an eye. Only downfall is they don't do QR15 dropouts, but then again, I don't know if anyone does in a rigid fork.
