Good 'n' stiff

"Rigid bikes are cool. Wraparound sunglasses and old
Levi's 501s cool. Timelessly cool. Suspension

may be the future. Suspension may make it easier to bomb
down scary trails without the aid of any
skill, but rigid bikes are still the beauty
and soul of riding."

My single speed was rigid up until I cracked a set of handlebars doing a 3 foot wheelie drop off a ladder bridge.

After that, I went with a 4 inch fork.

I do know where you are coming from though-riding a rigid forces you to be a better rider.
