OK....loving the regular forks on my commuter. There is a level of complexity that I eliminated when I went to rigid forks. Not only lighter, but control seems a bit better. My only regret is I should have got some made from steel. I think they feel better.:)

I couldn't agree more-- especially on a commuter. Two years ago I got rid of the last of my front suspension and I don't see myself ever having it again, even on my trails mountain bikes. I've never been on a full squishy squish but I can't imagine it being significantly better than my fat bike.

there is a time and place for everything. rigid steel goes on my commuter. suspension goes on my mtb.
I agree 100%. While I was building my mountain bike, I had to throw on a rigid fork I had laying around while i searched for good deal on a 100mm fork. My wrist were screwed from trail riding on a rigid fork. Some people's bodies can handle, some people's can't.

Now my street commuter is different story. No reason for suspension on the roads.
