    Knard on a Stans Flow in a RS Reba RLT. Tight, but it rolled fine.



    I'm happy with my Krampus rigid so I'm not going to mess with the Reba. I was just curious.
    Safe riding,

    Anyone else running suspension on theirs? Is the Krampus corrected for 100mm fork or 120mm?

    Riding mine at 100mm, likely will try it with 120mm also.

    That is a short list:

    Some have said that the Fox 15mm thru axle forks have more clearance than a Fox QR fork, can anyone confirm this?

    Just in case any of you are wondering if the 2014 Rockshox Pike will fit.

    Pic of crown and bridge clearance of a 2014 Fox 34. Pressure is out and fork bottomed. Plenty of clearance. The White Brothers Loop had maybe a little more but was a little tighter around the bridge.

    the pike is a bit snug for my taste, however its in there. I sent Fox an email with regard to 3.0 tire fitment on 35 or 50mm rims using their forks and received a reply stating none of them would fit, not even the 40.

    I haven't found a fork manufacturer yet that recommends using one but it doesn't seem to stop anybody. Seems like most guys I know use the Fox 34 including most of the guys at Surly from what I've heard. I'm just glad it clears the crown. Quite bummed though that it won't fit the Pike. By the way my pics were taken with a Knard on the Rabbit Hole rim.

    This is a 2013 Fox 32. Knard is on a Blunt 35 at ~20psi. Plenty.

    Amazing how much bigger the tire is on a 50mm.

    Krampus with Front Suspension!

    The Norwegian Surly importer fatbikes.no has a Krampus with a Lefty.

    Mike do you have pics of the entire wheel showing the tire/rim area?

    Just an update. I got some Rabbit Holes for my Krampus and decided to test fit the RS Reba again. The same tire on the RH's has light contact at top and sides now. So it won't work.

    Safe riding,

    To all who have posted comparisons with the Knard on wide rims like the Rabbit Hole and then narrow rims like the Blunt 35s, thanks, really is an eyes opener just what difference the rim makes in a tyres profile and volume. I had planned on just getting some Blunt35s to lace up for the rigid and run the knard upfront, but after seeing the images not sure if I will anymore and instead go for something wider like the RHs.

    Haven't bumped it up to 120mm yet, but likely this summer. I'll post up when I do, likely a week or two.

    Here are a few pics of the crown/tire.







    Fork is a Float 29 RL, not a FIT fork. Not sure of the year though...I've ridden it quite hard with the Knard/Rabbit Hole combo on my Krampus, no contact between tire and crown at all. Quite a nice addition to the ride quality!

    Facetious?

    There's very little difference.

    muchas gracias fleanutz. are you able to tune the natural bounce aspect out of the knard with fork adjustments?
