    Steel forks?

    HI all,

    I am converting a 26" wheel 21" frame size Giant Boulder to an electric bike with a front hub and need a suspension or regular fork made of steel to fight the torque.

    What can I use, where can I get it?

    Thanks!

    I don't think there are any steel forks out there that would fight the torque better than a nice 20mm TA fork that is meant to handle a 203mm disc rotor.

    Look at a Surly Instigator.
