I'm not familiar with teh brand, but I'm not nearly as informed on MTB's as I should be.

Is that a suspension fork? If so, do you know if there is a model with a rigid fork? Well priced quality MTB's are always good to know in our little corner of the cycling world. Thanks for posting.

Oh, and welcome to the herd!

Suspension corrected rigid forks can be had for under $100 these days.

very nice, i'm dying to buy a 29er, been looking at something cheap like a ss redline monocoger, or a marin muriwoods 29er because it is more road oriented.

I want a 29'er, but know that my funds won't allow it. I would have to sell something to get another bike, so I am not sure what I am going to do. I want a commuter, mountain, road, touring, SS, fixie, TT, and a 29'er. I know, I don't want much.

Do you have the rigid fork still? I am looking to replace the suspension fork on my Cypress. Let me know. I'd be interested depending on the Axle to Crown length.

Thanks.
