    Pug fork and 100mm rims

    Being an OG I should know these things, but I ran 50's so long I didn't pay attention.

    Can you run 100mm rims and a 3.7 on a 100mm spaced non offset pugsley fork.

    Recommendations are not to go over 70mm yeah and I shouldn't cut my frame and spread it with a car jack.

    Im just wondering how to get the thing into the fork without first deflating the tire.

    Possibly could squeeze it in if you used a drum brake or removed the brake calliper first.

    (As well as deflating the tyre )

    If the pug fork has canti studs, don't they need to be cut off to fit anything over 70mm?

    Ok here is what I got and want.

    I have a Sturmey archer 100mm spaced front drum hub.

    I want to lace it up to a 90/100mm rim and run a black Floyd.

    I have a moonlander 135mm non offset fork, but my hub dosent fit. I have to find out if I can change axles to a longer one.

    I think it would be simpler to get a 100mm Pug fork. I haven't liked the feel under braking of any of the 135mm forks I've ridden.

    I use an 80mm rim



    You may be interested in my mod to the brake mount to make it quick to remove.

    Give the brake time to bed in, ie lots of hard use, and it improves.

    No. I'm using a BFL on a 70mm UMA 2, and it clears the canti studs easily. Getting it in past the Hayes MX2 brake caliper is the tricky part, and I can only do so below 8 or so psi.

    ok i am going with my DNM suspension fork,

    50mm kris holm rims because i can get them in 36. i dont think have the space for 65mm LM's.

    i wish i could get some of the Echo rims in 36, but it looks like they dont make the ones i want.

    and my sturmey archer drum hubs. build on
