- 460 or 465mm carbon forks on a 26″ wheeled bike
“And rake angle is set by the frame – not fork”
I was going off on-one’s 26″ fork using 38mm of rake and the 29″ one using more. Somewhere on there they say other manufacturers compromise the 29″ bikes by using 26″ rake on the long fork intended for 29″ wheeled bike use
“why do you want to do it?”
The front end is low enough with a tall(sort of) 120mm fork on it and don’t really want to get it much lower
(It came with a tall (As high as the 120mm fork would be at 115mm) 100mm fork so not overly tall for it I’m thinking
I’d like to try a rigid fork on it as I like the steel one on my commuter when off-road. It doesn’t have any suspension correction or disc mounts so don’t really want to swap it acrossPosted 8 years ago
I realise the on-one’s 460mm carbon fork has the rake set for 29″ bikes, which I believe most manufacturers do not bother and use a typical 26″ wheel rake on the fork intended for 29″ wheel bike use.
Given that a 440 or 445mm carbon fork is still pretty low, lower than a real 100mm fork sagged 25% (reba, recon ..) why wouldn’t it be a good idea to run a 460 or 465mm (intended for a 100mm 29″ wheeled bike (one without the correct rake for a 29″er) on a 26″ wheeled bike?Posted 8 years ago
