I actually recall Trek selling a fully rigid trail bike in fairly recent memory: a few years of Stache 5 came with a 120mm rigid suspension corrected front fork. I do not recall being able to convince our owners to order one for the floor. Here you're comparing a recon, a budget fork, but a budget fork that actually does what it says on the tin, with a rigid fork. I wonder if your observations about your brother would change if you observed him getting off the rigid bike and immediately on a most basic trail hardtail with one of those steel stanchioned boat anchors that don't always do the whole suspension thing.
