cheap tapered 15mm rigid fork?
struggling to find a cheap rigid fork that is tapered and has a 15mm axle
will be replacing a 140mm fork so think im looking for a 29er fork
will just be using the bike for commuting so look for something cheap as possible
best i found so far is http://www.tritoncycles.co.uk/frames-forks-c6/rigid-forks-c51/salsa-cromoto-29er-grande-maxle-rigid-fork-p501?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=salsa-cromoto-29er-grande-maxle-rigid-fork-sizes-taper-sizes-taper-fksac9mtk&utm_campaign=product%2Blisting%2Bads#3984Posted 3 years ago
I’ve bought one. £110 with an axle and delivery.Posted 3 years ago
It’s in customs at the moment. Probably £35 for that.
So, around £150 all in.
Forks arrived today. Very pleased. They are incredibly stiff and light. No flex with gentle squeezing.
Postage time was brilliant from the producer but Parcel Force/HM Revenue are a joke. It took 4 days to hit our shores and then 12 days to reach me!
HM Revenues and customs took a lovely £23.65 on a product market at little over the same value.
The axle is brilliant. Was a nice surprise. I was expecting a solid axle with a nut, but no! It’s a direct copy of the shimano through axle.
The proportions of the fork are crazy. The legs are huge and the crown dwarfs the tapered steerer. Yes, thats tapered! Very light. Kitchen scales indicate 700g. Once the axle is in the fork has absolutely no flex at all. The steerer is plenty long but doesn’t come with a carbon bung. Face brake mounts which are nicely built up too.
Photos once they’ve been installed and a mini review once ridden.
Big thanks to Hellen at XMIPlay!

I’m draging up this thread again as thinking of some new forks, the salsa cromoto grande maxle have my eye but the chinese carbon is tempting.
