This thread gave me some insight into my issue. I have a Gemini tandem. Non-suspension corrected with a Judy DH. I want to replace this fork with something with disk brake and also would like to lower the front end, shorter axle to crown length. I did a crude measurement of the Judy DH and it appears to already be on the low side. Are there any options of finding a fork that is lower than 450?
anyone with the manitou drake 29er?
Lefty 100mm PBR A2C
I´d like to upgrade my bike and assemble Lefty 100mm PBR on it. I was not able to find info about the axle to crown lenght for this fork, though. I´ve found that 110mm Lefty is 475mm. Do you think 100mm travel Lefty A2C lenght would be 465mm?
You can try to ask on that info some ebay seller. There is plenty of Lefty's for sale right now. Anyway, nice bike you riding! I just find your picture searching on mtbr. Did you find those ZTR 650 rims? May be I can help you wuth that. I'm riding 29er full suspension now and really like it! 650 wheels should fit almost any 26" frame if you use thiny tires.
How to figure out which A/C a frame was designed to use...
I would be curious about interpreting the A/C measurement from a frame manufacturer. For instance, if I go to the geometry page at Salsa Cycles to read about the Dos Niner, it says: * Fork is not included. Fork measurements listed are for an average 80mm 29" suspension fork
Then, in the geometry chart, they list the fork length measurement as 468mm. Not sure if their definition of "fork length" equates to what we are calling A/C in this thread.
If I measure my 2008 Reba Race A/C from center of the skewer axle to the top of the crown on the backside, I get 489mm (which is about what others report for the REBA 29"er A/C 80mm fork - I've seen 486-489, but my year model 2008 is listed by RockShox with a 490mm "crown to axle" as RockShox calls it). If I measure to the bottom of the crown instead of the top, I get the 468mm. Whether that is coincidence or not with the 468mm Salsa "fork length" measurement - I don't know. By the way, my rigid Karate Monkey fork has an A/C of 468mm. So perhaps Salsa is using the "sagged" measurement for the "fork length".

I notice a Fox 80mm 29"er fork has about 9mm or so less in the A/C measurement compared to the 80mm REBA. And a similar difference between 100mm models (looks like about a 6-9mm difference based on who is measuring and which models).
Last question. The chart above shoes the fork offset as 44mm, yet I run an older fork with 38mm of offset. If purchasing a newer fork, what changes would I notice running a fork with the newer offset (closer to the chart's number of 44mm that is) compared to the older 38mm offset?
TIA on interpreting all of this for me.

Axle to Crown Length: 475mm (my measurement)
Manitou's published length is 478, so I'd say that's pretty accurate.
Manufacturer: Nishiki? I think RST or Suntour because its an elastomer fork.
Model Year: 2003/4?
Model: Bigfoot 29er
Axle to Crown Length 18cm.
Other info: Its the standard fork you get with a Z-29.
You are measuring it wrong. Axle to crown height is the distance from the center of the wheels axle to the top of the fork crown (the point where it enters the frames head tube).

Thank you so much for doing this, it has helped me tremendously.
?? There's a lot of modern forks listed, just 'cause the manufacture changes the stickers does not mean the length changes.

Anyone know the a2c of 2012 Lefty 29er XLR (100mm)? Much appreciated, thanks.

The 26" MAX PBRs and XLR's are not factory revalved, but can be revalved with a kit down to 110mm for 29ers and their A2C is 510mm.
need help choosing a front shock, v brake compatilable, stiff and made for jumping, any advice would be helpfull
I'm saying hi so I can create a new thread specfic to me.
Any rigid fork with 1" steerer, 430-450 a-c, and v-brake compatible?
2013 Rockshox XC 28 TK 80mm Travel, 29" wheel - 483mm
Measured 2009 Fox Talas 150 (15mm axle open bath).
It has additional 2-3 mm that you can force open, but they bounce back like some kind of negative spring.

'13 RockShox SID RCT3 Solo Air Fork 120mm 29" A-C is ???
Various retail sites list it as 506, but also have the 100mm as 506
Ive checksd a couple of sites and they have the axle to crown listed as 525mm.
Do you know the AC of a Float 34 2014 in 160 mm ?
Any data on the 150mm variant of RockShox Sektor?
nm, figured it out: the 15mm axle 150mm travel variant is spec'd at 529 +/- 5mm.
Anyone have Rock Shox link to A to C lengths for all their forks?

For MRP I can only find their main page, which only says "WEIGHT: 4.3 lbs. for 26/27.5", 4.4 lbs. for 29"; AXLE-TO-CROWN HEIGHT: 553mm for 170mm 26/27.5", 558mm for 150mm 29."
For Pike this is all I can find so far: 1861g (4.10 lb)
Hi, does anyone know what the Mazzorchi 350 (27.5/160mm) forks A2c height is?
Im looking to get a new pair of downhill forks for my bike but i have to get a thru bolt hub for my front wheel. They state that the crown pitch is 140mm but i have no idea what length hub I need to get; a 110mm hub, 100mm hub?

Hi guys I havea doubt.
Right now I have a 2009 Rock Shox SID Race 26' 100mm. I would like to trade it for a Magura TS8 100mm.
Right now the 27.5' prices are cheaper than 26. The axle crown difference is 13mm.
Do you think it will hurt? My frame is a 2012 Trek Elite 9.9SSL
I don't plan on converting it to 27.5' (at least for now).
