I am considering the purchase of a custom ti 29'er.
I have been looking at the New Fox forks for 29'ers.
I am convinced that I want the F29 (not the terralogic)- and I want the 100mm travel.
Why would I want the 80mm? Could the front end be made just as low for the 100mm (given that it was a custom bike).
Also not sure about regular QR vs. through axle?
Would I appreciate the added stiffness from the through axle? Or just extra weight?
Bike will be for XC use, much fireroad, a little singletrack. Mostly I like to climb and come back down.
Then there is headtube size- Should I go with 1.5 bottom/ 11/8 top? Or just stick with the 11/8 top and bottom- the 1.5 bottom is only an option with through axle fork.
Then on to the headset.
Do I need to run a headset with a tall baseplate to insure clearance?
Should I consider a "mixed" headset like a normal king bottom and inset top to get the stack lower?
Thanks in advance for your help-
