    Fargo Knard

    Anyone know if a Knard will fit on a V1 Fargo fork?

    Nope. Not even close on a V1...

    We tried it on a customer bike, and had to crush his dreams.

    Which Knard? The 700x41 would fit fine.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Dang. After making this post, I saw this other thread, where G-reg had a Knard on a 26" Salsa fork (I think 447mm length). Maybe the bend of the unicrown is different and limits the fork? Do you recall if it was with a RH rim? I wonder if that stretched the tire out vs. the 35mm Velocitys on G-reg's bike.

    I've tried the RH+Knard 3.0 on my Fargo v1; not even close. I've also ridden lots of miles with a RR 2.4 on a Gordo (35mm, I think), and there was lots of room. So a Knard 3.0 on a Flow or a 35mm rim *might* work, and it might not.

    Fargo Knard

    If my memory serves me right, my 3.0 Knard didn't fit in the V1 Fargo fork, even on a Rynolite rim.

    It fits. I'm running the Fargo fork on my El Mari steel. My LBS had the Krumpus. I took the front wheel off and put it on my bike. It fit fine

    Fargo Knard

    Not in a V1 (1st Generation) Fargo fork.

    It only fits in a V2 (2nd Generation) Fargo fork.

    FYI, here's a pic of the Fargo V2 with a Knard/Blunt 35 combo (on my current bike):
