this was my first MTB back in 2000. I learned to ride on this bike while in college in Brevard, NC. Lots of great times together. In 2013, I moved most of the parts to a Santa Cruz Blur LT2, and this frame sat in the garage. Now, just got a new to be 27.5 bike (devinci Django), so thought I would build the old Zaskar back up for a fun play around hardtail, for the pump track, smoother trails etc. canabelizing the Blur LT, The only things I think I’ll “need” are a fork and a seat post, but I’m sure there’ll be other things.
As for the fork, needs to be straight steerer tube, which limits options somewhat. If anyone has one for sale let me know. Here’s a couple I’m considering.

Fox Talas 32
What do y’all think?
I’m also open to putting on a rigid fork if I can find one cheap that’s got disc brake mounts and good tire clearance (~2.3)
