i had a rebate xl 465mm for 5 seasons riding dirt jumps and street with pegs and i will not ever claim that its flimsy, infact i was always impressed with it but on a 20ft gap i cased and it bent forward a bit not at the steer tube but lower down. identiti made a rebate that was offered 435mm and also 450mm (on the website) but the only 450mm i found is in UK and that amazon post says it wont ship to us.

doberman is gone
blackmarket is acting realy unrelaible lately
the pickle fork is unavailable
trail blade has mixed reviews
id almost settle for s&m but dont want my BB to be lower than my axles
fbm is expensive and waiting for custom work...

i rode a 20" for the first time this winter so im kinda open to a slight drop in headset hight but not too much. its going on an NS capital


Who chooses rigid to ride on dirt?? Rigid is pretty much a street/park setup, and given that, there are very few riders- either weekenders or pros that use a fork thats longer than 430 on street/park

If you are looking to ride dirt why on earth would you want a rigid fork? And if you want to ride street/park, why on earth would you want a 465?

Its a senseless length that needs no explanation... identiti went 425 and 465 with not much in between, except for the extremely rare, almost nonexistent 450- 425 is too short and 465 is ridiculous.

wtf kinda question is that? every bmx bike is rigid and they ride dirt
and 465mm felt about one inch lower than the 100mm travel suspension fork i replaced it with
dirt jumps generaly have alot of flow and minimal impact so why would i need suspension
i also ride plenty of street which is more impact than dirt and i dont need suspension there either
i also have pegs on my dirtjumper so i can leave the dirt trail and go to a skatepark and hit a rail or a ledge

my goal is to not have a BB lower than my hub axles, the NS capital has a steep headset so its still very street oriented

Thanks for adding to the list.
All personal preference of course…..but I’ve just never been able to like the looks of the SE style fork.

need an updated list, im having trouble finding an identiti rebate at 450mm

Identiti XL is 465- and isn't stable at that height, they are crap... you wont find another manufacturer who makes rigids that long(obvious reasons) Around 435 is going to be the max length you'll find from most manufacturers- you want rigids to be solid not flimsy.

P.s. Heads up- Dont use Alloy bars with rigid forks, its crap. Use steel

Uhhhh why?

I can’t imagine the extra force being put through a rigid will snap alloy bars?

Lots of us run rigid forks and alloy bars….dare I say most all of us rigid riders. Simply put modern alloy bars are way stronger than earlier bars. Granted I’m talking more about dirt jumping, street use where one is hucking more to flat and non straight landings are common would stress any bar more. And yes Steel will bend before it snaps.
His statement about the Identiti forks being crap are totally unfounded. Literally the strongest rigid forks made…in any length. The 465 being most common for suspension correct frames. But they do make 450 and 425 lengths.
I’ve literally built dozens of rigid DJ and Park bikes and never had a single issue with bars or forks….and I’m a fat ass!

Fun times at Sapwi Bikepark. Thanks to potatogrande for always getting great pics you re the man.

I recently swapped to a rigid fork and went with the Identity Rebate 14/20 in the 425mm length. I'm a little concerned with how low the bottom bracket is but from my first few rides around the neighborhood it felt fine.
