A few weeks ago I put together my first fully rigid 29er - On-one Scandal to try something different.
Even with FAT tyres at low pressure though I quickly realized that 29" wheels don't compensate for lack of suspension.
First I put a Thudbuster on and then Manitou Tower 100mm and although I really like the bike now, I miss my Maverick (still have the frame and never going to sell it ).
I was thinking about putting a AC 510mm 29" Manitou with a 29" wheel on to a Durance? (previously - Revelations 26", 140mm, AC 520mm)
My basic calculations show that taking sag into account, both forks would have the same height and the only difference would be in a wheel radius (31.5mm, 1.24").
I guess I'd have to run more sag to compensate for that.
What about the effect of extra rake on handling and height?
