    Looking for suspension fork with 1" steerer

    A friend of mine is turning his old Richey hardtail into a single-speed. The Judy fork on the bike is toast. He's stuck with the old 1" steerer tube. He's looking for a suspension fork that will fit in his 1" threadless headset.

    I've looked on eBay with no luck. Does anyone know of a source for such an animal???

    ThanX!!!!

    I think the only manufacturer still producing 1", and they may not be any longer, was Marzocchi. Check their website of send them an e-mail. You will probably bay full retail, but if the frames still in good shape, it'll be worth it as Ritchey are sweet hardtails.

    Marz still offers the MX Comp with a 1 inch steerer.
