-Hi, sorry if asked before, I tried to search but didn´t find any, but I guess the question has been asked before....

What options is there with regards to a reasonably priced rigid fork for a 29´er, I have been looking at the Trigon but would like to see if there´s anyone with an different opinion/option....???

Trigon, Hylix or Exotic. Exotic will be the heaviest and more importantly cheapest which is why I went for it. Also preferred the aesthitics of the straight legs rather than curved. A second hand Niner might also be an option. I figured that there can only be so much performance difference between rigid MTB forks so just go for the cheapest one you like the look of and has a durable reputation = Exotic :D

The main advantage of the Niner is that they do not bend much when braking. I know they are way expensive, but if you can find a used one, it is the way to go.

Both Superstar components and On One have cheap carbon forks, for £180 and £150 respectively

And Exotic carbon, I suspect they are all the same parts under the logos.
