I have both a KHS Brentwood and a Diamondback Voyager I. Not sure the years, but both probably mid-late 90's. Both threaded 1 1/8" headtubes.

I want to put a threadless fork and disc front brake on each an don't know how to tell or where to find out if I should get a suspension or non-suspension corrected fork. Any idea?

Also what would a suspension corrected fork do on a non-suspension frame?

Thanks alot.

Measure the axle to crown distance. My suspension corrected Surly 1x1 is spec'd @ 413mm. I'm pretty sure it's the virtual measurement (but don't take my word for it), so I'd measure with both tires on the ground; straight up and across. I have seen other rigid forks that were suspension corrected with A2C's of 430-ish; those may be actual measurements, so you may have to figure that one out with an email to whom it may concern.

A non-suspension corrected frame using a suspension corrected fork will jack the front end up a little. It will throw your bike's geometry off a teensy bit.
