    I forget what the exact numbers are but I bought a Pike to replace this fork for a different bike. This Fox fork set at 140mm travel was almost identical AC to the pike at 150. Makes sense looking at the parkwood's published geometry too. The fox slacked out the HA and SA a hair. I never tried running the fork at 140 on the Parkwood. The 120 seems great.

    I just finished this lg frame up. Built using many of the components from my felt nine. Running a 100mm reba rl for now. Its either an 80mm or 90mm stem on there. Converted from 3x to 2x in the front for extra clearance over logs.

    I just ordered one also. I ordered the FSA headset they recommend and sell on the on-one site. I figure I'll get a 1 1/8 spacer-reducer locally for my old 1 1/8 fork.

    Can anyone confirm good tire clearance with a wide 28/35mm wide 29er rim and a 2.4 tire (like an Ardent or something) on the rear of the Parkwood?

    Thanks a lot in advance if you can help!

    When you mount a brand new Ardent 2.4 on a 28 mm Flow its fits but is very tight and you get some tire rub depending how much your wheel flexes. After the tire stretches it will barely fit and always rub ( see post#45). I have a set of 35mm carbon wheels and the tire is much wider mounted on them compared to the 28mm Flows .I bet the tire would not even turn if I put it in the Parkwood frame.
    It might get a little steep from here

    crapballs - that's a flaw for a frame like this.

    I'm interested in Derby wheels which are 35mm wide.. Do you think a 2.2 tire would fit in the rear?

    Thanks.. Looks like you could do 2.35 as well..

    Is your 35mm rim from Derby or Lightcycle.. and how do you like it?
