    Dahon Matrix. I would like to get rid of the suspension fork. Where does one find a non-suspension fork for 26" wheels?

    Surly advertises some "suspension corrected" forks.

    See the instigator and 1x1 forks. The instigator has disk attachments. I know nothing about compatibility with your bike.

    I did a search for Rigid Mountain bike forks on google, came up with several entries:http://www.mtbstore.com/mountain-bik...igid-forks.php ;
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=36135

    Tons O'forks out there, new and used.

    Why drop the suspesion fork- weight?

    Try Webcyclery.com. I bought two rigid mtb forks there recently - they have a pretty good selection. The ones I got were a Surly 1x1 and a Vicious Cycles fork with disc tabs. They are both designed to replace 3" travel forks and assume you ride with about 3/4" sag. The suspension forks are pretty much useless if you ride only on pavement.

    Here's my bike. There's one light missing on the seatpost (facing the other way) and I usually use one water bottle and a bigger pannier.

    Here is my trusty old Schwinn hybrid commutter with fenders and baskets added. The handlebars are the Nashbar trekking bars.

    Hey Zealot, I bought it in 1998 but the guy said it had been sitting there for 2 years. It's made by Procycle in Canada. A LBS here elegantly called Procycle/Peugeot frames "component racks" (read piece of crap). Well, I don't care coz it hauls my butt just fine. I was looking for a touring bike, didn't know anything about them but reading the touring forum, now I realize I got lucky. It has all the braze-ons (not on current fork which was changed after a crash), bar-end shifters, 40 spoke rear wheel (changed, bent rim, now 32 spoke, long story), and gearing made for touring, good fit, even my favorite color... all that for 700$ CAD! It's showing its age now. Many parts have to be changed. I'm considering getting a custom touring bike but it ain't cheap so I'll work on my Peugeot this winter to extend its life. When I get a better tourer, I can keep the Peugeot for commuting.

    I don't see Peugeots often, wether in shops or on the streets. I'm not even sure canadian Peugeots are still made. The equivalent might be Mikado, which is also made by Procycle.

    My 2005 Jamis Nova arrived Friday (finally) and I picked it up after work. Went for a test ride yesterday.
    It'll take a few days to get used to the rolling resistance of the tires (700x32). My other bikes have 700x23. It came with egg beater pedals. They seem to work ok. I'm still debating as to whether I'll keep them or take the SPDs off my old commuter and put them on the Jamis. I like the carbon fork.
    I'll be adding the lights, reflective tape, and panniers today.

    Heres a picture of my Crescent Hybrid that i use to commute to my work with. Actually its pretty fast bike, so i use it for some lighter training and touring as well

    700*32 wheels/tyre, 52/39 crank, 12-25 casette, works like a charm

    1979ish Scwhinn Sprint. Swapped out the stock cranks with a set of 80's Dureace cranks and a 42 tooth chainring. Took off all the ugly stuff like back brake and reflectors (got a blinky and headlight for night time riding). She's a fixed gear road conversion 42 up front 14 tooth cog in the back. I ride her at least 11 miles a day.

    Nice Jamis! That is a phat luxurious commuter rig. I am jealous

    I like your tall stem height. It's easy on the backs and shoulders. Riding a little taller also makes it easier to look ahead too compared to the low tuck of the peloton race bike style guide that many are obsessed with looking like.

    Thanks. I've been waiting for it since the 3rd week of October.
    The LBS owner didn't want to cut the stem until I'd ridden it a few times. He had the handlebars at the top of the stem with all the spacers below, but I told him that was too high so he moved the bars down one spacer. Once I get a good handlebar height dialed in he'll cut off the excess.

    Got me a new bike yesterday, 2004 Specialized Sequoia Elite. It's my first road bike, and so far I like it a lot. Only about 10miles on it but those 10 miles were smooth and fast!

    Attached are pics of the new bike and the old bike. It's quite an upgrade!

    I sold the Trek to a friend just yesterday. It carried me from 1998 through 2004. His bike was stolen, now he has a ride. The Specialized is my general purpose bike. Fenders and disc brakes are nice when it's wet out. 700x38c tires are great on dirt roads. This bike is a very comfortable ride, having suspension in the fork and seatpost. Cateye tail lights, fireflies, and Turbocat S25 lights keep me visible at night while lighting the road.
