    I need a 1" threadless fork with disc tabs

    I need a 1" threadless fork with disc tabs.

    Do these exist without suspension corrected legs?

    I am putting it on my 2000 schwinn panther. I can't seem to find anything on amazon or google. All I can find is suspension corrected legs. Wouldn't this mess up my geometry if I get a corrected one? Thanks for any help.

    I doubt that a suspension-corrected fork will affect the geometry noticeably. You'll have a hard enough time finding a fork with both a 1" steerer and a disc brake mount. 1" headsets had disappeared by the time disk brakes became standardized.

    I switched from a non-suspension corrected rigid fork to a suspension fork on my Cruiser, and it seems fine to me. The rigid fork was pretty messed up so I can't say if there will be a noticeable change or not, but I have had no issues with the suspension fork. (Well, other than it being rusted to the point where it is now a rigid fork, but I knew that when I got it.)
