Does it really exist?? Numerous Ebay sellers like Bikewagon seem to believe a fork is 29er specific with an axle to crown of 410mm. If your metric challenged like me....that means around 2 1/8" inches shy of a 80mm 29er fork. The Ritchey website shows no evidence of any 29er fork?

Cross fork

The Ritchey carbon cross fork has clearance for a 2.1 29er tire. It's close but it does fit.

But it's not suspension corrected so if you put it on a sus-corrected frame you'll get that nose-dive feeling b/c the nose of the bike is lower and the seat and head angles are all steeper. Am I describing that well enough? A sus-corrected fork is usually in the 468 range which puts the nose at the right height
If however you have a non-suspension corrected frame, like a cyclocross frame, then it's a good fork.
