    Looking for a Lightweight

    Rigid 26 inch MTB fork with brake bosses. 1 1/8 inch threadless steerer.
    I tried to find a carbon or titanium fork, but not much luck. Any help would be appreciated. (I have a full Chro-Mo one now). This is for riding paved roads.

    Here is what I'm looking for.
    Thanks in advance for your help!!!

    can carbon stand up to the rigors of mountain biking? I'm guessing (hoping) that you're looking to set up your MTB for road riding?

    I went to http://www.reynoldscomposites.com and all I see are forks for 700c

    Do you have a link for the 26" rigid forks?

    Thanks,

    Hey deliriou5 look at my original post. This is for riding on paved roads.

    No off road riding with these. My "teeth couldn't take it".

    Thanks,

    Your bike mechanic is wise beyond your wildest dreams.

    If you can't be good at one sport then you can be okay at three.

    These guys: http://www.pace-racing.co.uk/ make very high quality carbon MTB forks.
