Its a bit subjective this debate...I rode my XtC with a rigid fork for a few months, it wrecked my back and the short length of the fork gave it a much to road bike style front end stance. It turned me away from cycling until i bought my new sprung specialized.

Most people are right though, it wont be an expensive mistake. Buy a cheap rigid steel fork, ride the hell out of it and if you dont like it get the sussers rebuilt.

One point to make, remember to take your suspension forks back from your lbs when you get it changed, as mine kept the forks and sold them on without telling me (manitou axel elites )
