First off I want to put a rigid for on a klein attitude. I only want to do this once so please any advice would be helpful.

I plan on using it as a commuter/cruiser.

Should i use a straight rigid fork? Cyclocross fork? How long of a fork should I use?

Thanks.

I've looked at both,Kona P2 and Reynolds ouzo pro cyclocross. I do not want to be cheap,if I can get a deal on cf I would do so gladly.

First impression of fork and company are good. Purchased fork Monday nite and it was waiting at my door Thursday when I got home from work. Free shipping. Fork looks really good. Looks well built and went together easily. Weighed 920gm uncut. Did not weigh it after I cut off excess. Will weigh what was cut off and measure length of steerer tube left. Looks really sharp on my gloss black Klein. Got a short ride in, no mtb'ing and it feels pretty good. Positioning does not feel like it dropped very much from the 100mm Fox I had on before. Will post pictures Sunday nite.

Took mine out for its maiden voyage this afternoon. It absorbs the road fairly well,it got a little squirrely when I only had one hand on the bars at a decent speed.

I put on some lightweight tires to smoothen out the ride,no knobbys needed for this cruiser.

Altogether it road really well and I'm very happy with the outcome. I will put on some new grips,ergo bars and a tighter cassette to make the bike complete.

Here is the fork I purchase except it had v brake mounts.
