Good buy, Great fork.
Jensonusa has super fast response time and ships the day purchased almost every time. I'm a repeat customer for a reason, and will continue this trend. Phone staff is courteous and friendly as well. I had a conversation about my build when calling to get specs. The tech even had suggestions on what he though would look cool and ride nice. Great place to do my "bike business" with. Thanks guys.

Best rigid out there!
Simply needed a fork to replace a worn out suspension. I had a 100mm travel, so to compensate I added a couple spacers and a new headset that helped make up the 20mm difference. Made the bike feel totally different in all the right ways, feels more accurate in corners, easier to climb and maintain speeds. If you are thinking about going rigid, get the karate monkey.

PROS: Lightweight, Durable, Easy To Install, Attractive Design

KARATE MONKEY! Nuff said!
Used to convert my 1995 Trek Y11 to a rigid 69r. Was able to mill an aluminum rod to replace the rear shock to set the head angle at 69 degrees. So which the 26" rear tire this is a true 69 69r! Get the 2011-12 Karate Monkey without the canti mounts. Lighter and thinner for better compliance and vibration absorption.

PROS: Function, Looks, value

CONS: Weight

I'm assuming that the steerer tube is actually 1 1/8" rather than 1 1/18"? Just a heads up on a typo :)
