I am building a bike for my sister who lives in Vancouver, BC. I bought a 2004 Fuji Thrill frame yesterday for $30. It's in excellent shape and the perfect size for her. I have all the components for a decent little mountain bike except for the fork.
She will do mostly road riding, but will do the occasional trail ride. Should I get an inexpensive suspension fork or a rigid fork?
I am leaning towards the rigid as I think an inexpensive fork will only weigh the bike down and not improve the ride.
How about a rigid carbon fork? Do I go with a straight or curved fork if I go rigid?
Thanks for the help,
