    650c road fork with 26x1.4 tires and mtb front wheel

    will this work?

    making a cyclocross style bike out of an older mtb frame- keeping the 26" wheels obviously

    Thought about that too but never done it. The problem will be the road brakes you have to use. You might have to resort to long reach brakes. The 1.4 tires might be a bit wide but there are 26x1 tires out there. Confuse about the cyclocross thing as you already have a mountain bike meant for dirt roads.

    Anyway you usually do this if you want a lighter and aero fork for less drag to mimic a road bike.
