- rabbit hole/knard in salsa cro-moto?
I’ve asked a chap over on MTBR for more pics of his set up.
He is running a 445mm Cromoto/Rabbit Hole/Knard with room to spare.
I’m planning one for the front of my Fortitude.
My guess would be your using a 470mm Cromoto so should be more room above the tyre 🙂Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Not mine, but bikemongercharlie tried one in a Niner fork for me…
My Niner steel forks measure 92mm just before they curve inwards.
Swift steel fork is almost identical to the Niner, & the Salsa looks very simillar.
Planning one for mine if I can pick up a Knard & a Rabbit hole for it.Posted 4 years agoGotamaMember
letmetalktomark – what about a Jones Unicrown fork for the front of your Fortitude? I look at doing that before plumping for a Jones. The a-c is about 5mm different from memory but the trail is roughly the same. Sorry, can’t remember exactly and Genesis have taken the fortitude off the web now. Would give you fat and semi fat options. Can get a Jones fork from here….Posted 4 years ago
I ran a fat front on the Fortitude for a while using a 100mm spaced Pugsley fork (445mm AtoC).
Worked well enough but for less weight I could run a 29er+ in the Cromoto fork …. well in theory 🙂
I also found the Pugsley fork to be quite stiff in normal 29er mode.
More here from my original build thread 🙂Posted 4 years agoGotamaMember
Knard does fit in a singular fork ……on a p35 rim if that makes any difference. I tried it over the summer months, not much room but it doesn’t rub. I’d say marginally tighter than the niner fork above, wouldn’t want to do it when it’s really muddy but then you wouldn’t be using a knard in those conditions anyway.Posted 4 years ago
