    Flash carbon 29er rigid

    Is it possible to put a rigid fork in a Flash carbon 29er?
    Anybody riding that?
    Thanks.

    Yes it's possible with the KP058 headset reducer. Was going to do it but once the headset arrived (last week) I'd already decided to sell the bike so it now seems a bit pointless to do all the work for nothing.

    I've heard this will work. I may have even seen a picture somewhere of it done... if anyone has done it I'm interested in this idea too. A Flash with a Niner fork would be pretty cool.

    That was my plan, too bad the parts were back ordered for so long.

    they have them on ebay, in stock. I have a similar issue. I want to run a tapered fox fork on a flash but so far, to do that requires buying both adapter headsets, the 1.125 and 1.5 and using half of each.
