I built up my Nimble 9 two years ago at this time. I got the 2014 frame because they didn't have any 2015s ready yet. I had been riding a lot for three years but got two rides on the Nimble 9 and quit for two years due to life. Now I am back and riding 4 to 7 days a week. I'm not so sure I even need a suspension fork here in Florida. This bike handles everything so well especially with the 2.4" 29 Racing Ralphs. I thought I would try a rigid fork and see what it was like. Any recommendations?

What fork and travel are you running now? Are you comfortable with the ride and head angle the bike presently has? This will help figure out the length you will need.

I went with the MRP Rock Solid on my N9 for no other reason than I wanted a 490mm axle to crown rigid fork, and I liked the way it looked. At the time I would have preferred something in steel, but there were not many 490 mm steel forks that were not boat anchors. Not sure what is out there now in steel. So far I have no complaints with the MRP.

I'm running a 120mm Reba RL and I like the head angle the bike presently has but I heard that the N9 was designed for a larger Fork?

It's designed for a 120mm or 140mm fork. Check the geo chart on the bros website.
