So hardtail made for ballpark 120mm forks, most rigid forks seem to be on the short side (more like 80mm equivalent) would using 29er rigids be retarded? I cant really think of any reason why not :eh:

29r forks work good, did it with my Switchback, see pic in this and this blog post. AND gives you the option of chucking 69er styles onboard...
