    Rigid Fork

    Looking for a repuatable rigid fork for my hardtail-cyclocross bike. I am a clydesdale and am a fairly serious racer.

    The M5 frame was designed for an 80mm fork, so you have many choices.
    Axle-to-crown should measure 410-425mm.

    -Surly 1x1 fork 413mm
    -fork from Bianchi single speed 420mm
    -Tange, suspension-corrected version 413mm
    -Kelly 425mm
    -Dimension disc 410mm
    -On One Inbred Titanium 420mm
    -Vicious Cycles 425mm
    -Planet X Superlight (not very light) 425mm

    Kelly, Vicious, Hunter for more $$
    Surly, Dimension, Kona for less $$
    All feature disc or canti brake mounts
    All are good forks.

    The Surly 1x1 is strong and well built, and its good value. You can buy it to run both canti or disc. The Surly guys answered my emails about it quickly, and with no BS. It arrived at my local dealer real quick. Good product, good service, good value - you can't ask for more.

    I'm wieght approx. 215 lbs, have a Vicious, they use good steel and both butt and tapper the forks - noticible differece from Surly or Kona, a little more $$ but worth it, nice and supple ....

    Surlys suck, toooo stiff
