I realize disc brakes are superior,but for me and my local terrain they just don't really make sense. Is there a suspension fork anywhere that still has canti mounts? Anyone trying to get rid of one ? Thank you. BTW,I am looking for a 29er fork.

The two previous posters are correct, but I would advise you to get the RST above the Spinner. That is, if you can find an RST! They are a little difficult to get ahold of, but they are far, far superior to the Spinner as a true off road fork. The Spinner isn't terrible, but it just isn't up to the same level as the RST.

I have a White Brothers Magic with canti posts and love it. Mine is a couple years old, but they still make the 80mm version available with canti posts. The IMV valve is one of the best platforms I've ridden. Nice and supple with the hits, and automatically locks out when climbing out of the saddle. Great fork for a single speed 29er. :thumbsup:

How long of a steerer tube do you need?

The old White brothers BW forks often have canti posts.

I hear the RST's are good, I wish I had bought one instead of my WB!

I have an RST and LOVE it. It is the only suspension fork I have ever run so I might not be the best judge but none the less I love it. No flex goes where you want it and keeps the chatter off of my arms, I think everything a for should do.
