Rigid fork...dumb idea?
I am thinking about revamping my old GF Wahoo and using a rigid fork. I ride mostly fireroads and easy/moderate singletrack.....no bombing off cliffs. Is this a dumb idea? I really don't want to drop $300 for a quality suspension fork, and the Judy TT I have is a friggin boat anchor on the front. I have never ridden singletrack on a rigid frame before.
I am thinking of slowly upgrading the frame with the new fork, new wheels/disk brakes, etc. Am I throwing my money away?
