    Put these on my trek mtb & haven't looked back since. Got rid of my cheap suspension forks that came standard on my bike & cut 4lbs off my bike. Love the extra control rigid forks give the bike. Great product & reliable service from jenson as usual.

      Comments about Salsa Cromoto Grande Rigid 29er Fork:

      I actually sent it back without opening the package because I ordered it by mistake. However, I own 2 of them and I would buy another if I needed one, because the Salsa cromoto forks are light and strong for being steel, they have stainless dropouts that face forward, and the welds and finish are top notch. I have one on a single speed mountain bike and a commuter.

        Comments about Salsa Cromoto Grande Rigid 29er Fork:

        I bought this fork when I needed to replace the stock fork that came on my Trek Marlin 29er. It's really more due to the cheapness of the stock fork, but my bike dropped six pounds when I did this conversion.

        It was also my first foray into riding rigid, and it rocks. It's a high quality item, and is a relatively cheap way for a person to upgrade their fork, and develop their skills.

          Comments about Salsa Cromoto Grande Rigid 29er Fork:

          One of the best rigid steel 29er forks on the market. Just as good as a custom steel fork costing 2-3 times as much. I have 2 of these and love them. Decent in the rough stuff and helps to make the bike climb fast and easily up the steepest hills.

            I needed to replace my cracked fork on my Raleigh, did some research and reviews which brought me to this great priced fork. It's a pretty piece for sure I actually bought another one for my project bike now I hits two! Ride is stiffer compared to my Raleigh xxix that's all I can relate it to.

            Still one of the best

            Comments about Salsa Cromoto Grande Rigid 29er Fork:

            Salsa's Cromoto Grande was around before I started riding 29er's and has always had a reputation. It is no-nonsense, no frills, but it doesn't need to be anything more.

            The build quality is good and it shows when you ride it. Nothing makes a 29er track better than a rigid fork and this one does it all in style and for not a lot of green.

            Keep one around with a crown race installed for fast swap-outs when you aren't going all day rocky downhilling.

              • Q:

                Wondering if this will work on a 22" Kona Kula 29er? Read on a MTB forum that some bloke had great success with the Salsa Cromoto, but he didn't give the frame size of his Kona Kula.
