Chain store schwinn, SX-2000 WSD bike. The suspension fork is a joke. She wants a rigid fork. Steel or alum works, but we're looking to spend ~$50.
With her off the bike, the length from axle center to the crown is 457mm (18in) seated. Putting all of her 110lbs on the handlebar it goes down to ~430mm (17in.)
After a few hours online, I've only found forks under $100 410mm and under, what am I missing?
26" wheels, V bakes, un-threaded.
The fork is branded a SR Suntour.
Oh, she wants chrome colored, but would settle on a black fork, the frame is purpleish. Ah wait, she said lilac, meh.
I'm in the USA, not opposed to ordering online.
