Front suspension

Hi!

I hope this is the right forum to post my question, my apologies if it is not.

I like the idea of the front suspension system that comes with Canondale bikes. Are there other manufacturers that makes front suspension systems for 700 rim/tires, that you can activate and deactivate on the fly?

Rock Shox makes a model specifically for touring bikes/hybrids/cyclocross bikes.

Marzocchi is making a high quality fork for the 29inchers (700c rims w/knobbies).

So, Yes, there are many options available to you.

Thanks!

Can you please tell me the models numbers? Can you lock and unlock the suspension on the fly like the Cannondale?

I check the manufacturers web sites, but didn't find the forks. I send an e-mail but they haven't reply to me yet.

Rock Shox Europa

The Europa comes in either 26" or 700c versions. Most in this line are the same way.

I went to the Gary Fisher websiteFisher
and reviewed their 29 inch series bikes.

From that, the Marathon SL29, MX-Pro 29 w/ETA, and the MX-Comp w/ETA and MX-Comp Coil are all available in the 29/700c format.
