    Rigid Front Fork on MTB

    I am looking into getting a fork from Viscious cycle.

    http://www.viciouscycles.com/forks.php3

    Does anyone have any personal experience with this fork?

    ...they DO look like really nice, seem like very sturdy, well-made Forks - i just ordered one this week - they are runing about 4 weeks now, they only build to order - my STEEL IF Fork rides really well - and i wanted to try another brand for my 2nd SS and the Vicious Looked tempting ...i say go for it! - USA - HAND MADE - very reasonable price - how can ya go wrong?


    ...add on: i just received this Email from VICIOUS, works for me, hope it helps:
    "Thanks for the e-mail. We recommend 2.3 width tires on our forks. I know people that have run larger tires but the 2.3 width seems to offer a reasonable amount of mud clearance."

    The only downside I have heard about Vicious forks is limited tire clearance (width).

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I've been riding one for the last year and a half and I love it. It's a comfy, strong and a good looking fork, but it won't fit really big tires. I'm actually selling it and probably my spot frame to fund a 29er if you're interested.

    I have one of each. I find the IF fork to be much more plush.

    BTW I run the WTB 2.4 Mutanoraptor and have had no clearance issues with either fork.

    I've been a little busy.

    No, sadly. I still haven't bought any fork yet. I'm in the hunt again, but I'm leaning towards an 80mm travel fork now. If I can find one.
