Being a bit of a luddite, I am drawn to the idea of an AM hardtail. Being a bit of a luddite, I am also drawn to the idea of a fat-front.
This fat-front Honzo has been on my mind for months now:
How We Roll: Montana Miller's fat-front Kona Honzo | Dirt Rag Magazine
And then I saw a comparable FireEye posted yesterday:
Fat Front Set-Ups: Post Your Pics
The Honzo and the FireEye Flame are both designed around 120mm+ suspension forks, which, if I'm not mistake, is the equivalent of ~ 510-525mm A-C. These guys have fitted their AM hardtails with Salsa Enabler forks in order to put on the fat fronts. The Enabler has just a 468mm A-C.
Any thoughts on how the shorter fork impacts the ride and/or performance? Anyone tried it and felt they lost the benefit of their AM hardtail?
