    On-One 29er fork for a '07 Cog..

    Some spare cash, looking to replace the fork for something a tad better. Looks like the specs on the On-One are the same (close) as the MC fork. 470mm a/c, suspension corrected. This be a good upgrade fit?

    Also i'll be replacing the stem (donno what length/rise yet) along with some mary bars..

    the superlight is a decent fork. being segmented you'll get slightly more front/rear flex with a unicrown fork, which some people like (at 190 lbs and aggressive rider i dont care for it). its made of cro-mo, which doesnt ride as well as a reynold, columbus, or thron steel fork. i personally prefer a high quality steel unicrown fork which is somewhat stiffer front to rear yet has an excellent ride quality.

    the niner bikes fork is a great fork (little over 1/2 longer ac length, same rake), as is the IF and vicious and a few others.

    if youre not super aggressive or somewhat lighter you may want to think about a ti fork. i find the segmented ti forks to be WAY to flexy for the way i ride, but it did have a nice ride quality when i wasnt wildly flexing the legs. (im trying to find a unicrown ti fork with v mounts for my cross bike.) for smooth, rolling single track i thought the segmented ti fork was great, but the more gnarly the going got the less i liked it. sold it to a buddy who weighs about 155 and hes totally in love with the thing.

    HOLY CRAP!!!!

    yes, stay away.... far, far away from the ti fork... and carbon forks...

    actually, you may want to consider avoiding segmented forks as well. as i said previously they do flex more than a unicrown fork and a hoss such as yourself could make one flex quite a bit. hehehehehe

    IMHO the niner fork would be a great choice for you. its a really nice renyolds steel fork, and is less $$$ than the IF and vicious forks.
