- Steel rigid 29er fork
I used a fork off a Surly Ogre on my Inbred. At least I think it was from an Ogre, it was the Surly one with about a thousand different bolts and attachment points. The one linked below but with 3 bolts on each leg as well for anything cages.
While it was good it was also very heavy (~1.2kg)
Does it have to be steel? I swapped to the On One carbon monocoque fork which is great and not massively expensive. It feels nicer to ride and more importantly is ~600g lighter.Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Had a few.
Niner currently, but don’t go paying the new price as the Swift fork is identical, but for a nicer disc mount. They ride identically. Weight is identical. The Niner steel was always reckoned to be 853, but it’s not.
With a big tyre it’s a nice supple ride.
The Charge fork looked nice too.
There was someot on EBay doing them, for about £30-40.
I was tempted because they were 511mm length, ideal length for me. Like an upright position.
The other one I really liked was the Exotic carbon.Posted 4 years ago
Nicer ride to the On-One.
Referring to the On-One of old though, not the monocoque one.jimfrandiscoMember
I have looked at the One One monocoque. Does it look weird on an inbred frame?
Yes! i think we discussed this a few weeks ago as i still have one for sale if you’re interested…i think i read something that said a bike with one of those forks was like a “squatting dog taking a p1ss…”Posted 4 years ago
unkind, but a fair point!greyspokeMember
I would go for a carbon fork, I’ve ridden a couple of steel 29er forks and they are quite noodly. On rougherr stuff I could really notice how much better the bike tracked with a carbon fork (original On-One darbon legs/alloy steerer job) compared to being pinged about the place with the steel ones.Posted 4 years ago
