FWIW, I like the tracking of a rigid fork, but at times need suspension as well. I've got both, and each has a crown race for my headset on it. Switching back and forth isn't that big a deal.

I really don't like riding with suspension. my bike now feels much more sluggish since it gained two pounds up front and it's not as good in technical areas. makes me almost want to become just a roadie...i hate sussy forks.

BUT, I'm currently having physical therapy because my shoulder is all screwed up from the serious abuse i've given it riding rocky trails all day long for many days.

Easier to just get a 2nd 29er, like I did. One of each. :D

Any excuse for another bike works for me!!

If you feel spendy, how about a Jones fork? He can make it as nimble as you want, they weigh 640-700g or so, and I can only imagine how soft they feel.
