sorry if this has been answered elsewhere...
but i have an RST SHOCK on my Trek and i want a STIFF fork that would replace it. i want to shed the weight and have an easier go going uphill here in town. just a light trail/comfort bike becoming a hybrid/commuter/urban bike.
i know the RST shock has what i would call a forward offset....how do i deal with this in finding a comparable, lighter fork.
oh and the bike is an aluminum frame (16.5"). comfort is not an issue. slightly better performance is.
