I’m considering an upgrade of my heavy spring forks. Have you upgraded or perhaps aware of what will fit?
Wanting lighter air forks but unsure what fits the steering head.

Thanks

Some are tapered, some are straight. Yours is straight. Be careful of the dimension from the axle to the bottom of the bridge. That's the one that may limit your wheel/tire size. I'm running Schwalbe Super Moto-X 27.5"x2.8" (big tires) and it's a pretty snug fit for the fender between the tire and the bridge. I have 1/4" clearance tops. If I were to replace this fork, I'd be tempted to look at 29" forks to get a little more clearance there. Side clearances are fine.
