Hey all,

I'm looking for advice and ideas here.

I have an old steel Waterford that needs a new fork. It's a great frame but I've tried a couple different forks on it (2000 SID, and a Judy with Englund air cartriges) and have never been able to get it to handle right.

Clearly it needs something shorter than the 80mm forks I've been running. Or mabey something with less travel?

I'm considering shimming down the SID to 63mm and running it, but I'm sure there's a better solution out there. Also kicking around running it rigid.

Sooo

Any suggestions on a vintage suspension fork that's relatively light and might be found on eBay? Mabey an old Marzocchi?

What would be a good rigid fork, preferably with disk tabs?

Any help you guys can give would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

I know what would make it handle right. A Waterford fork! It'd have less travel too. Not to mention cheaper and easier to maintain...
