    450mm or 468mm Snowpack for a Fatback?

    I'm collecting parts for my new Rocker Drop-Out Fatback (size 20") build.

    Please the collective here advise which Snowpack fork would be the most suitable for this frame, (the 450mm or the 468mm)?

    Please can someone advise the maximum size tyre / rim combo the Snowpack fork will take?

    Thanks very much,

    Richard.

    Why not go with the Fatback Carbon Fork to match?? I have it and it is a great fork plus it can fit Bud on UMA 90's for sure!

    I've got a Fatback carbon fork with Bud on an Uma 90 and recommend that setup.

    Another vote for the Fatback tapered carbon fork. It makes for a stiff, responsive front end.

    Anyway, I believe the answer to your question is 450mm. That's what mine measures.

    Thanks for all the replies, I guess I'll have to seriously think about buying the Fatback carbon fork! I do like the look of the Snowpack though, it reminds me of the Pace forks I have on my old Giant MTB.
