    Krampus Rabbit Hole + Knard in a 29er Carbon Fork?

    Sorry if this has been addressed, I couldn't find it. Will the Krampus front wheel fit in a standard carbon fork like Niner, White Bro's, etc? thanks
    GET Bret Weir, I said.

    I'm running one in a Vassago Pitchfork. The tread of the tire on a RH rim is right at 3" wide and 30.25" tall.

    The Carver tapered steer tube 29 fork with the reverse arch legs fits the Knard on my shlick nortpaw 29er. Wicked light if you can find one (stopped production for fatbike forks for now...)

    The Carver, WB (plus all the others that are shaped just like it- eXotic et. al. ) and the Niner all fit the 3.0 Knard, though the Niner is a little snug for my tastes.

    I tried my RH/Knard on the Whiskey (QR, not T/A) and it was a no-go, too narrow between the fork legs. Maybe the T/A version is wider, but I did not try one.

    That's weird- is it on a Rabbit Hole? I tried mine in a Whiskey fork I bought a year ago and the tire wouldn't even turn. QR or TA?

    Krampus with niner fork.

    Seems to work great. No tire rub. Not a lot of miles yet but no problems with a few trips to Duthie park near Seattle.

    The fork was installed by a reputable shop in the area.

    Hey deuxdiesel,
    The No.7 QR Whisky MTN fork is not meant for 29+, which is why it does not fit (2.4 max).

    The No.9 TA Whisky MTN fork is designed for 29+ (Rabbit/Knard). With 15mm of clearance around the tire.

    Cheers, M
    Beware of running any fork with less than 6mm(EN safety standard) of clearance all the way around the tire.
    ** If the tire picks up a rock, woodchip, or squirrel you will get tossed on your teeth. **
