Suspension Forks for 700c wheel?

Hi, I want to get new forks for my Carrrera Crossfire 2, I've looked on Chain Reaction Cycles but they don't have any suspension forks that fit a 700c wheel. Does anyone have any suggestions that will fit a 700c wheel, my steerer diameter 1.1/8" and I would like the fork to have at least 80mm of travel and also have lock out.
Thanks for your time!

Why do you want new forks ? perhaps disc 26" fork will do, the arch just has to clear the tire ..
or a 29er certainly will ..


pretty easy to find a Race quality fork that costs more than your whole bike ... if cost does not matter .

Does your Carrrera Crossfire 2 have a rim brake or disc brake?

You'll prolly need a 29er fork. To be honest,it's going to cost as almost as much or more than what the bike's worth for a quality suspension fork. What's the issue? You'd do best to check with local bike shops to see if they can modify your stock fork(swap springs,fork oil),or to see if they have any take-offs from folks who have switched to rigid.

If disc, Chain Reaction has your fork.

What is the 9mm part, and does this matter?

9mm is the diameter of the front axle. 99.865% certain that's what your front wheel has.
