Why aren't 135mm forks more popular on 26" SS bikes?
I've never seen it done before, but I've always wanted to do it. If my 1x1 didn't have a suspension fork I'd be running a very different setup. 135mm Pugsley fork with a Surly fixed hub front wheel and Surly freewheel hub rear wheel. Same size disc rotors and cog/freewheel so a wheel swap would be painless. There's numerous times when I'm riding my SS and have an urge to do a lap fixed or vice versa, but I can't because they are two different bikes. Does anybody else think this would be a fun idea? I see all the benefits of having a second "rear" wheel on the front for Pugsleys, why not Trolls or 1x1s? It doesn't even have to be a Surly..really just about any 26" rigid bike would work as long as the AC length of the Pugs fork cooperates with the frame.
A purple 650b Troll setup like this sounds killer!
