    Krampus suspension fork

    I think this might be the answer for a suspension fork for a Krampus Lauf Forks - The Lauf Trail Racer 29 - The lightest suspension fork on the market. The only problem with the current model is has max 2.35" tire. Perhaps Surly could work with Lauf to develop a 29+ version. I think I'd be interested.

    I disagree. The big tires already give you some undamped suspension. If you're gonna put suspension on the Krampus, get a real fork with some travel. The Lauf design makes more sense for a carbon framed light weight racer than a big burly steel Surly.

    I'm confused. Why do you think this is a good suspension fork for the Krampus? I was expecting to see something with big clearance.

    That is why I said "develop a 29+ version" It is the concept that may work.

    Perhaps your right.
    I was thinking that I don't need to much more suspension than what the tire offers. I guess that the tire provide about 15 - 20 mm of suspension when it reaches it's maximum "bottoms out" the fort would them come into play offering an additional 80 mm of travel.
    I am no expert it was just a thought.

    This fork requires NO maintenance! That's why it's better!

    No lockout possiblility on that fork. For some reason they claim that as a feature?

    Plenty of room for a 29+ tyre with a bit of DIY spacer manufacturing.
