    WTB: 2016 Troll Suspension Corrected Fork or Instigator 1.0 Fork

    Title says it all. Looking for a 1 1/8" threadless fork that is the suspension corrected version of it. Cannot find anything through LBS, online, ebay, etc. Getting somewhat desperate so going out on a limb here.

    Just contact your local QBP dealer and get a Troll fork there, I got one a month or two ago. Surly offers both suspension corrected and non-suspension corrected Troll forks.

    No go - QBP doesn't have the suspension corrected version, nor the Instigator fork anymore.

    Maybe they're waiting for fresh stock? The Surly website stil lists both.

    You could probably use a suspension corrected Ogre fork in a pinch, depending on the frame you want to put it on.

    Niner just released a steel fork and there are others around. I wouldn't get hung up on nominal wheel size, I would look for axle to crown numbers like those of the Troll fork or the instigator fork.

    The Instigator fork is shorter than the Troll fork and much stiffer, not recommended. I've used a 29er fork on my Troll with no ill effects with 26" wheels. An Ogre fork will work. I actually prefer the 29er fork with 26" wheels, the standard Troll fork with 650b.
