Default Re: Frame Geometry relative to Rigid Fork

@Sir anthrax- I was researching about suspension corrected forks and came across this one. Voodoo 500 fork. It is comparable to 120mm fork travel when used on a 26er bike but compares to a 100mm travel fork when used on a 29er. Applicable to both 26 and 29 and can also run fat tires. Here's the link: http://voodoo-usa.com/bicycles/zombie500fork

Default Rigid Fork ?

Hi po sa lahat,

Okay lang po ba or advisable na mag rigid fork (particularly MOSSO) kung ang tinatakbo ko naman is purely more on road / long distance runs ? :thinking:

Thanks po

Default Re: Rigid Fork ?

I dont see any prob using rigid fork in road application. Surely it will reduce ur bike weight. Pero wala rin akong nkitang prob kung nka shox k basta nka lock lng. I think depende nto s perspective ng user nkita ko lng advantage is gagaan yung bike. Kaso feel mo lhat ng lubak lalu n pag sobrang tigas ng gulong.

ah eh...nasa body english yan. you need to learn how to absorb impact using your body, hindi lahat eh sa bike pinapaubaya.

@nchong, basta suspension corrected fork. what you do is measure the A-to-C or axle to crown ng isang 120mm travel fork. then measure mo ang isang rigid fork. if pareho ang A-to-C nila, yun ang swak sa frame mo :)

Default Re: rigid forks

I'm a rigid user here and a road and trail rider. Lightweight is the main advantage of rigid. Instant masahe pag nasa trails kasi lahat ng bumps na-absorb mo lahat, pero its not a problem. Kumbaga sanayan lang yan. Yung iba nga sumasali pa sa race ng naka rigid eh. :)

About dun sa trails kung rigid ka, yung elbow mo magiging shock absorber. Medyo naka-bend ng unti yung elbow mo. Kailangan kasi hindi sasabay sa vibrations yung upper body. Medyo nakakangawit sa umpisa but you'll get used to it.

Default Re: rigid forks

Ask ko lang kung saan makakabili ng suspension corrected na rigid fork? Nagpunta na ako ng quiapo and cartimar puro mosso and saso, hindi ko kasi gusto design. Nakakita ako ng kinesis ang mahal naman parang epicon ang presyo alum lang naman. Sa ebay madami and mura kaso papatayin ka naman sa shipping. Naghahanap ako katulad ng 1x1 surly na fork and voodoo yung may bend para di masyado matagtag. Iba kasi rigid.. malalaman mo mga mali pag ride sa trail and best sa ahunan.

Default Re: rigid forks

sir - makikitanong na rin. may suggested shops ba sa cartimar na may mosso or saso rigid fork for 29'er and kaya ba niya ang sta rosa/silang trails? mostly cemented na naman yata. TIA!

sa mga rigid fork users mas madali ba talagang pedalan vs. suspension forks? salamat po ulit!

Default Re: rigid forks

@ fullcarbo, yes, mas madali pedalan ang rigid kesa suspension fork pero kung smooth trails lang or sa kalsada.

kung madalas ka mag trail at balak mo mag rigid i suggest mag steel/cromo fork ka.

kung simple xc trails lang naman like timberland green and blue, fort trails, aguinaldo, la mesa, kayang kaya ng rigid forks yan

Default Re: rigid forks

from SR XCR user to Mosso aluminum rigid fork user.
nung nag rigid fork ako, dun ko nagamit ang arms ko as shock absorber at parang napapaslide forward ako sa saddle. ang laki ng ginaan ng bike ko sa ascends. pag descends naman, parang konting pihit lang liko agad yung bike. bumaba din ang BB height ko. sumasayad na sa humps. na try ko din sa pangarap trailhead papuntang licao-licao, ayun para akong nag jackhammer.
