    Fork for 100mm hub and LM/Endo?

    xposted from Surly forum:

    OK, maybe this is a dumb idea...
    I have spoken with Mark at Wildfire and hope to be ordering a FatBike when he gets back to me with some pricing. The next batch of FatBikes won't be ready until Fall. I was thinking about maybe building up a Pugsley in the meantime, but I want to use a fork that will accommodate a Large Marge wheel with an Endomorph, built on a 100mm hub like the Fatbike, so I don't have to get a second front wheel built when the FatBike shows up. Is there another fork like the Wildfire/DeSalvo fork available?

    Thank you
    and it's OK to say, that's a dumb idea! I'm a newbie..

    Here's what we run:



    3 1/2" of travel, plenty of clearance, nice and plush, very light. The Hope Pro II hub can be converted back and forth between 9mm QR, 20mm thru axle, and 24mm Maverick with some adapters. Very versatile.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Thanks!

    So far my list is Maverick suspension fork, Vicious Cycles, Bontrager Switchblade, and John Evingson. Seems like something in there should work! To start with, I'm thinking rigid fork.

    Thanks!

    No more frames or forks 'til Fall according to Mark (which is why I've asked, to see about building up a fattie before then)

    Thanks!

    There are rumors of a 100mm Surly fork for the Pugs as well. It may not be available until next Fall but Pat Irwin is riding a prototype currently. John Evingson might be the quickest route to a rigid 100mm fork.
