Found 12th Jun 2008
If you're making a MTB into a city bike you'll probably want to dump your suspension forks (on ebay probably) and get some lighter more efficient rigid ones.

Trouble is people seem to charge lots for them. These are the cheapest I can find.

Please don't vote these cold proclaiming that your £40 argos dual suspension bike is a better deal because its got two lots of suspension and these are just forks with no suspension.

If you can find cheaper rigids please let me know!


An inexpensive decent-quality fork for a 26"-wheeled ATB or hybrid.

* Unthreaded 1 1/8" steerer.
* Cantilever/V-Brake bosses.
* Mudguard eyelets.
* 1070g (CrMo version).
* Black - matches any bike.

It always makes me laugh watching people wasting loads of energy compressing their forks on cheap dual suspension bikes on the road when rigid forks would be cheaper, lighter, easier to ride and more efficient physically. If spending less than about £400 on a bike, or if most use is on road, I'd always go for rigid forks over a suspension system.

Voted hot (for the sake of those who realised the above too late!;-))

£20 might be better spent on a copy of the Highway Code :whistling:

plus £8 delivery....

I have found cheaper ones on eBay, but from a reputable dealer, this is a good deal. Heat added.

Agreed, but to be honest if you have a bike primarily for road use surely then you would be better going the whole hog and buying one more suitable for road use, either a hybrid a touring or a racing bike. Most people who ride those cheapo ones I am sure there is an element of "cool factor" amongst their chav peers!

As far as mountain biking is concerned, it really is false economy I feel to spend less than £900-1000 on a dual suspension bike, especially if your budget is considerably less. Much better concentrating on a decent frame, quality mechs and going for the lightest bike within your budget. For most people that do mountain biking for recreation front suspension really is all thats needed as rather than serious downhilling they are using them for light cross country/single track if even that.

Fork handles.

Plagiarising old skool two ronnies jokes

Hot deal but get the Cro-mo ones if you ever plan to use them off road, as hi-ten steel bends quite easily.

for forks sake

fork off with the jokes. :whistling:

Anyone got any salt and vinegar ice cream?.

if you'd got a decent bike in 1st place it would have locking out forks.

.... get the fork outta here
