S&M Rigid 26″ Fork Apr 20, 2009

Add another 26″ Rigid fork to the Market. S&M just announced their Pitchfork. 435mm blades with a 33mm rake. Obviously intended for rigid 26″ bikes, but will surely be reappropriated by the 700cmx crowd. Handmade in the USA too. White or Black are the colors available.

No word on availability.

from their site:

All you MTB’s out there, the call for a reliable 26″ fork has been answered. Introducing 26″ Pitchforks, same quality as a regular Pitchfork. Just oversized for your big ass wheels.

    this is the same as the black market fork, i heard s&m owns black market, so they just changed the name, this is the fork i’m riding and it rules…. not new though

    cool. thanks man! I knew they took over BLKMRKT, just wasn’t sure enough on the details to make a call…

    Length / rake is the same for sure.

    IMO, anything over 425 a2c for 700cmx rides like a chopper (770c) or sketchy w/ a 26″/650c. look into the NS RNS II, ID Park, SE LG, Bruiser forks (400 a2c)

    S&M has not taken over blkmrkt, they helped by funding and building frames & helped get blkmrkt on its feet and now are going separate ways… they just decided to offer the former blkmrkt fork themselves.

    thanks for the info! Much appreciated!

    Carter at blkmrkt decided that the Contraband/Pitchfork’s a2c was a bit long, so he is coming out with a new fork with a shorter a2c called the Tech9 (with the shortest a2c of any 26″bmx fork I’ve seen). The prototype looked dope and should work great for tricks. Supposed to drop in a month or two.
