Has anybody have any experience of converting a 26" wheeled hardtail to a 69er?
I have a steel hardtail with 120mm forks and worked out that putting an 80mm travel 29er fork in will add about 30mm to the floor to crown height, so roughly about a degree and a half on head angle?
I know that will then change seat angle and bb height etc...
When put into practice has anyone felt a major difference/problem with it? pedal to tyre clearance still ok?
