Specialized hardtail shock for fork?
#1
I have an old aluminum frame specialized hardrock with disk brakes and 26" wheels. The shocks are rusty and crap now. Anybody know a replacement fork that can fit, keeping the geometry same?

*I mean to trash the shocks and use a normal fork instead.

Thanks

You want to get a rigid fork for your bike?

Is this correct?

You will first need to examine the type of headset that your bike uses.

If there is a locknut at the top of the headset, then it is threaded. If there are only spacers, then it's threadless.

If it's a threadless headset, you'll need to search for a [1-1/8" threadless rigid fork 26" disc brake].

If it's a threaded setup, this can be harder and more slim pickings.

You'll need to search for a [1" threaded rigid fork 26" disc brake].

Try terms like 'alloy' if you want to try finding an aluminum one.
