    One of the LBS guys claims that the fox 34 has more clearance than the 32. Can anybody confirm this? Any differences between 2013 and 2014 forks? 100,120,140 clearance differences?

    Wow, those are rather narrow... how much do you weigh and what pressure do you run to reduce sidewall flop?

    When we test fit multiple forks at the shop the Fox 34 looked to be the best in the clearance category. Slightly better than the 32.

    Thanks lancelot for sharing your findings! When you get your hands on the 29" Dirt Wizard, let us know how it fits the 32 & 34 forks. Thanks!

    Has anyone tried the Knard on a Velocity Dually yet? I really like velocity rims and the Dually is very intriguing since it has Velocities tubeless ready low profile bead lock designed into it.
    Additionally has someone given, a Marzocchi 29 Micro Ti or a Rockshox Reba XX 29 with the Knard on anything? More importantly on anything wider than a 35mm rim...

    I don't think Duallys are out in the wild quite yet.

    Soon......

    We're saying early fall right now, just to be safe. Keep your eyes peeled, we'll be sending out announcements when we have the first in stock.

    Just finished adapting a maverick DUC32 to fir the Krampus.
    I had to machine an extension to the steerer nut, as the headtube length is so short, and I also machined up some longer travel reducers to take into account the larger wheel diameter....

    DUC 32 with Knard

    What do you think you're getting for travel on the DUC now? I've got one of those in the garage and was thinking about doing the exact same thing, just didn't realize the headtube was an issue. Great post, and thanks for the pics!

    The spacers are 45mm, and the top bottom out bumper is about 10mm, so travel is probably about 100mm.

    Only update from me is that the Rabbit Hole/Knard is a pretty tight fit in my 2014 Fox 34 but it totally works fine and can't feel or hear any rubbing. It will pack up with mud though if riding though any wet sections. Overall I'm stoked on it.

    Much like the upside down fat bike fork branded under a few names, this is Taiwanese catalog item, so expect to see sold by a few companies.

    15mm axle (I think), compression and rebound adjust, 100mm of travel, tapered steerer. Around $500 if I recall correctly.

    Knardly! If the Dirt Wizards don't get me under their spell I might have to try this out.

    Though I would't like a Krampus with a suspension fork I say to all who like this: wait until spring 2014. I the printed Surly catalog 2014 one page in the "Trail bikes" area is blank and it is written that you should do exactly this: wait until spring 2014.

    If it is a new frame, the would have printed it.
    Why does the Krampus have a 44 mm steerer tube when there is no version with suspension fork planned? They have just do add a new 29+ fork with *enough* room for a 3" or 2,75" tire and the page is filled with content.
