    27.5" Fork on a 26" Frame with 26" Tires (ISSUES?)

    So I impossibly can't locate any 26" air fork in my country. I even tried Facebook Marketplace. But then I saw one comment on a 27.5" fork saying that there'd be little problem putting one on a 26" frame. So, I found one which fits the budget (for those who want to know, it's $70... yes, $70). It's a Bolany Air Fork with 120mm of travel for 27.5". Would this drastically change the geometry so much that the bike would be unrideable? Thanks!

    What travel (mm) fork is your bike designed for? If possible, compare the axle to crown measurements for whatever length 26er fork is spec for your bike against any 27.5 fork you are considering. 10mm difference is generally OK

    It's a 100mm FS XC bike... I don't really understand the axle to crown thing...
