I wondered about that CCrew. I'm sure his lbs will suggest something suitable that will accomodate a rack. Now, I'll go educate myself on exactly what 'suspension corrected' is all about. I still got a lot to learn about bicycle parts.
Later, from Sheldon Brown
Suspension-corrected rigid forks mimic this geometry: they have longer blades to hold the head tube up to the same height a suspension fork would. If you desire to replace a suspension fork with a rigid fork, you should opt for a "suspension-corrected' rigid fork to preserve the frame's normal geometry.
May be a problem finding one with rack braze ons.
The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me
