    Fork suggestions

    I'm at the point where I need to select a rigid front fork for my 26 inch tandem build. I'm not using disc brakes but I think it may be smart to have a fork with disc brakes tabs should I ever change my mind.
    I need a fork that will provide a normal geometry for my 26 mountain Tsunami frame and obviously be strong enough for a tandem. Price is an issue since I'm on a tight budget.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Yes, ask the folks at Chuck's as they should have something on hand that works WRT proper length and rake for that particular frame's head tube angle. Off hand, I don't know if they use a corrected head tube angle for a suspension fork and that should factor into their recommendation.

    Spoke with Chuck's they simply suggested a rigid 26 inch fork such as a Surly. I ordered a Surly Big Dummy fork which looks real beefy and has both disc and canti options.
