I want to build my 2002 Jamis Dragon into a lightweight V-brake rig . It originally came with a 80mm squish up front and I want to go rigid. When figuring out what length fork to use is sag factored in and how does that translate to A to C length? All the suspension corrected forks for 80mm forks have an A to C of 445mm (which is pretty much the same as an 80mm squish @ rest) and I want to know if I can use a rigid fork with an A to C of 425mm? I have three forks in my basement to choose from;
Salsa cro-moto 445 A to C (disc only)
Salsa cro-moto 425 A to C (disc and canti)
Exotic carbon 425 A to C (disc and canti)
What are the pluses or minuses of either fork? If I use the shorter A to C fork, how will that impact my ride/handling? \
Thanks in advance!
