yes, i think you are right colker they all are after 1993 - i believe in some form or another...

I have a custom Big one inch fork that will make it's way on this bike. It needs to be painted, and was made for a wicked with the proper geometry/tracking....

I really love the way wicked's ride...

Mine is a 93. First I built it w/ a 415mm vicious cycles and didn't like the way it rides. Too bad i don't have the pic at this computer but the other pic shows it w/a 390mm fork.... non corrected.
I too love the way it rides.

I will swap out tonight and try a 390mm tomorrow

Ha, I have been hunting down a 1" rigid fork for awhile and just found that same exact Specialized 390mm fork. Had to have the crown race seat knurled down (had the old 27mm JIS style, wanted to keep my CK headset) and then had it repainted. Feels so much better than the old janky suspension I had.

Rides like a dream. Smooth, steady, shocked by how much more responsive it is with the rigid fork. Blue paint wasn't quite as dead on as I'd have hoped (there's a speckle in the blue on the frame and we missed that in the paint), but the silver is perfect.
