    another fork option?

    Misfit Psycles diSSent Rigid Fork - PSYCLESTORE

    disclaimer-I don't know if it will fit 3.7+'s...but it says it will fit 80mm hoops so I would guess it might...at least those running "Pleasantly Plump" on 44-65mm rims...

    Anyone got any first-hand knowledge?
    If Huffy made an airplane, would you fly in it?

    I think the 80mm is refering to suspension travel not rim width.

    Yup, fork looks to taper up as it leaves the 100mm hub area.

    I will agree. Looks like it is about 70mm wide up toward the crown based on a 100mm hub spacing and the amount of inward taper of legs.

    I have a Misfit fork and the 80 mm rim thing is a joke (literally). 80 mm is the width between the fork legs. Pretty sure that description was written before fatbikes took off. You can fit a WTB weirwolf 2.55 LT in there, but not much more.

    As Syranak said, the 80 mm refers to the amount of suspension correction, not to the rim width.

    That part gets me all the time, I get so excited, and then I realize its mm of travel
    I live in "bush" Alaska, in Galena on the Yukon River.

    Yup.
    "The axle to crown of 470mm is equivalent to a suspension corrected 100mm fork for a 26" wheel or an 80+mm (fork for a) 29" wheel."

    No reference at all to rim width.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    If you look at the picture like you've got to squeeze the drops together when you secure the rim rather than there being a taper...it looks like it could be nearly 100mm.

    a skewed perspective

    oh well

    Would it fit a Snowcat or Umma-1 with 2.5's? I'm looking at mods on a Trek Transport I have started to buy...maybe an IGH too...
