    Need 1" Rigid Mt. Fork

    Would anyone know where to get a 1" rigid mt fork for 26" wheels....I have tried all local lbs and none to be had. I also have tried internet but still too expensive(50 plus shipping for a tange).

    I picked up a beater cannondale mt frame for 25 over the weekend without a fork and would like to build up to a ss winter bike, and don't want to spend alot for a new fork. Used to be able to get a steel figid at the local lbs for 10-15 from the mt bikes they would get and put on newer suspension forks, but I guess they don't do that any more.

    Also nashbar just has 1" rst suspension for 99(too much) and only 1 1/8 rigid steel....

    anybody know where I might look??

    go to www.webcyclery.com, then to forks, mtb forks, and rigid. Check out the Tange rigid mtb forks, available in 1 1/8" or 1".

    I don't think you'll find them for less than $50 new.

    My LBS has a junkbox full of old 1" mtb forks. They're not difficult to find.

    Do you want a threaded or threadless? Threaded should be a dime-a-dozen at your LBS but the cheapest threadless you will find will likely be something like the Tange. I think webcyclery had it for $43. I was looking for the same thing but I ended up using a Dimension CX fork from webcyclery because I wanted to run disc brakes up front and it had the tire clearance I needed.

    that is what I thought too. I called every bike shop except 2(not open today) and no one has any. around 5 -6 years ago they were giving them away....

    Go to Goodwill and buy a whole bike.I was just at the Goodwill here and they had Mart bikes that use a 1" threaded for $14.78. They had several ones to choose from also.

    If you can't find one anywhere else then you may want to try this $29 threadless fork from NYCBikes.

    http://www.nycbikes.com/item.php?item_id=371

    I've never dealt with NYCBikes. I don't recall the specific complaints, but I think that others on this forum had problems with NYCBikes.

    A lot of people have had CC/shipping problems, as in being charged but never getting their merchandise.
    I have placed an order from them once, and it took a little longer than it needed to. The biggest problem is the attitude that you will get from the owner. Good prices on stuff though, but it sucks having to cross your fingers when you give your CC info out.

    I will hook you up with a rigid fork from an old Giant Rincon frame I have laying around, infact you can have the whole frame for shipping and a meager sum, if you're intrested send me a PM.

    doco, You may want to check out NYCbikes.com They have two, new 1" threaded steerer suspension forks from RST and Suntour. These aren't high tech, but they are suspension forks, and the RST can be delivered for under $35 last time I checked. I have the Suntour M3000. We've used it on trails, and it works OK. Hope this helps.
