    Five-0 question

    Sorry this may be a silly question but would a Five-0 frame work with a rigid fork? I tried a SS conversion on my old trek frame but the tensioners are annoying me so I had thought of getting a Explosif frame with it's sliding dropouts.

    Then I saw CRC had the 2011 Five-0 frame on sale. Would a 440mm rigid fork mess up the geometry too much?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    1. AtoC distance on OE Fork
    2. AtoC distance on Rigid Fork

    AtoC= axle to crown

    If the numbers are close, will, close enough for your liking, go for it.
