I posted a few weeks back with a question about throwing a longer rigid fork on a 1x1 frame. I originally thought about the Karate Monkey fork, but was talked into the Instigator. Needless to say, a 1" increase in fork length is just what the 1x1 frame needs, IMO. Yes, it handles a tad slower, but the bottom bracket is up enough where I'm not striking the 180 cranks on every other rock, and it feels oh-so-much-more stable on the downhills. Plus, the pimpy black straight-bladed fork looks better than the stock fork, dontcha think?
