    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. **

    hi david,
    i was wondering if you had a picture of the knard from the front of niner fork. I want to get the niner rdo 15mm fork for my carver and run a 3.0 tire on it but I can't find anything that says t will fit

    Niner fork space from front and rear of fork.

    Pictures of spacing with Knard, Niner carbon fork and rabbit hole rims. Hope this helps. I have been riding this setup for over year. Not huge miles but some pretty rough riding and never had an issue. I weigh in at around 200 pounds.

    I asked them about it, and they said it will not fit. The inside width is about 75mm at the top.

    I've seen one in a Niner RDO, but it was pretty tight.

    no it's not.
    Niner RDO (15mm) - 570g
    Niner (q/r) - 565g
    Carver XC470 (q/r) - 610g
    Carver XC480 (q/r) - 570g
    Carver Trail490 (15mm) - 720g

    no matter what combination of forks you try, a Carver is never lighter than a Niner... the best comparison is even, and that's a q/r Carver vs. a 15mm TA Niner.
    Truth.

    Oops I stand corrected on the weight. I guess I meant cheaper? I've beaten the Carver like a red headed step child and it's been a great fork. I had the Niner q/r straight steerer. The carver had a better trail feel to me. So I sold the niner. Been on the carver for couple years and two bikes. I do like the look of that niner rdo, might try one. Just really need some real tire choices.

    I ordered the niner RDO for my carver gnarvester and it was to tight with the 50mm rim and the surly knard. I returned it and got the whiskey 9 and it's great and has plenty of room for the tire.

    This combo also fits in the MRP/White Brothers 490AC carbon fork. Clearance looks a hair better then the Whiskey and Niner forks.
