Is it possible to lock up this fork so it has zero travel? I want it to be as rigid as possible since I do not have the cash for a new fork yet.

Thanks.
Yeah, open up the caps on the crown and pour in fork oil, all the way to the top. Either on one or both sides.

Aren't the MZ all elastomers and springs???

If so, I don't know if the seals will hold up to the task of having oil inside... not to mention keep it in.

I have a SR Suntour that's fairly stiff for a 150-160 pounds rider... It's all beaten up. BUt shipping from Mexico will not be fast, maybe not even cheap. I got rid of it because it's too stiff (and it has the poorest technology around).

Yeah, good call. I didn't think about that. It's worth a shot though. Try one leg and see how it holds up.

How about just getting some solid spacers of the right diameter and using those. It would certainly result in a rigid fork, so long as the damn thing didn't self destruct.
Now that you mention it... wouldn't it be better a rigid fork then?? A cheap chinese one made out of steel would be just fine.
