Exotic or Salsa (try Triton cycles).

Been looking at those and exotic do seem very popular(especially with you sonic:-) )
The salsa gets very good reviews though, although its only available in 425mm, so would mean a slight change from 100m to 85mm....

Just need to decide.
Exotic which is £97 or the salsa £79

Any further help be great

This, never used one myself but ive read positive comments.

They are pretty cheap, £40 ish. They looks the part too.

I think they come with different dimensions so you should be able to find one that suits your bike. :)

Going to buy a Exotic fork,Reading around their forks seem to be very good and tbh im looking for something that isnt going to break after a year or two.

I cant justify the carbon fork for my commuter(or it cost more than bike lol) so going for the alloy version at £97, il let you know how it comes along once ive ordered.

p.s Will i have any problems if i try fitting it using my current headset on the rockhopper?
