Rockshok makes nice forks. Fox is the other big one. Manitou still makes forks. All of them are expensive. Forks are very much a "you get what you pay for" item.

There is always the choice to go rigid as well for significantly cheaper.
Thanks. I've been thinking that I should have some really solid forks. And i don't mean rigid.
