I've currently got a Stumpjumper Comp (26") 1x9 with shot forks. I'm shopping for a custom Ti 29er (likely monstercrossi-sh) and am looking to run the front end rigid with a set of White Brothers Rock Solid Carbon Forks - after a few test runs on said fork.
Since the fork trial would have implications to my frame's geometry (e.g., to run rigid or plush), my conundrum:
a. Run 26" version of fork on my current bike (for a more valid test)?
b. Run 29" version of fork on my current bike (and transfer to new frame)?
My riding is aimed at more of the endurance stuff in the Mid-Atlantic (sections of rooty and rocky) and I'm a stone's throw from hitting 40 years of age - so a little experiential musings from the fellow geezers that have started running Viagra forks and the possible toll on the upper body.
Thanks in advance!
