    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.
