White Bros rock solid on a 1x1
I have the chance to pick up a nice used 425mm rock solid.
Question is: Surly lists their '80mm suspension corrected' rigid fork as 413mm axle to crown. From all the info I could gather on the White Bros. fork, their '80mm suspension corrected fork' is the 445mm axle to crown version.
So, the 425mm version is the closest axle to crown measurement compared to the Surly fork.
Logic tells me that that will keep the geometry close to what it is now (which is what I want) with the Surly fork installed, or am I missing something?
I have a Fox F80 (450.9mm) and I added a 10mm spacer to drop the fork a little to 440. The bike is raked out a bit, but still rides nice. Really not a super big deal, it will pick up your BB, and your top tube. Steering is a little slower.
