Default Rigid Fork Overview

Early nineties quite a lot riders chose the frame only option and fitted a suspension fork. Nowadays it seems that many FatCogs aren't happy with their Mag21, M4 etc and/or they just want the original FAT part. Result, as there are more Yo frames than forks prices skyrocketed recently.

I thought it would be fun and helpfull to compile a list of rigid forks. Remember the craftsmen are trying to make a living with making those great, honest products.

Thanks to DirtRag!





For me a Vicious in Aquafade would be Cool Great fork with acceptable pricetag that was already there when my Yo was built. Also like it has its own identity.
