With the cold weather on its way, I've been thinking about switching my hardtail over to a rigid carbon fork and adding a large volume tire to the front. Last winter my suspension fork would feel like crap on the colder days. As the oil cooled, it would rebound really slow and pack down. It seemed like the conditions of winter riding really beat the thing up. I've been looking at the Pace RC31 fork (26 inch), looks like they have 2 models. Anyone use one of these forks, or have other suggestions to take a look at?
