Has anyone tried a 46mm offset fork and a 51mm offset fork on the same frame.
I have a frame to build up, theoretically designed for my Fox34 29 with 51mm offset. There aren't really any concessions to the frame geo on the back of the fork offset.
I was planning to replace the Fox with a Pike. I can get a 51mm offset Pike, but they are lagging behind the 46mm in terms of availability.
Anyone experience both offsets e.g. swopped from a Revelation 140mm to a Fox34 on the same frame that can give me some feedback (Subjective I know) on how much the steering is slowed/speeded up by the different offset?
The shorter offset obviously decreases the wheelbase slightly (6mm) but results in more trail thus slowing steering response slightly(and adding a theoretical amount of stability)
I have only ever used the 34 on my frame.
Basically trying to decide if I need to wait for the 51mm Pike or not.
