    Fork Clearance Issues?

    What is this I hear about the forks hitting? I've got a 660 size 15". Is mine going to give me problems?

    Is it all/most forks with travel adjust knobs or Rebas only so far?

    Fix? Ventana crown race? Cane Creek S3+5 headset?

    The +5 will fix most clearance issues. I have a 19" with a Rockshox recon and the floodgate knob hits the frame. Not sure about the 15" frame.

    I have a FSA Pig and a new unassembled Zion 737 small. Does anybody have any pictures of a small 737 and any suspension fork clearance pictures? I'd like to know if there is any chance of a suspension fork clearing this frame.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    im running a cane creek S-3 plus 5 and my reba didnt clear the right side of the fork. So today i was at my LBS i was lucky to over hear a discussion with another customer about his trouble clearing his downtube (SC nomad) and found that the ventana king spacer work on the can creek without any problem! so i went ahead and purchased the 4mm race so now i have a total of 9mm and the flood gate knob just barely clears...

    Wow, even with 9mm and still close! What size frame is yours?

    Will a Fox Float RL clear? There's no travel adjust, so maybe it will since it seems only the adjustable travel forks are an issue.
