    Fat fretin

    Hey guys

    I'm needing a fat bike after another project fell through, I had gather some parts and would like to try and use them on my new fat bike project.

    SO... I'm leaning towards a Mukluk so I can run full fat, 50mm fat and standard 29er or a combo of these.

    I happen to have a brand new Jones unicrown fork with a whub on a 50mm rockman rim never ridden.

    So my question would be what would happen to a Mukluk if I was to put the jones fork on
    enabler 468mm a-c 41mm offset
    jones 435mm a-c 55mm offset

    Oh by the way did you check out that dudes photo's from Alaska????? "just in"
    Amazing!!

    The shorter fork will drop the bottom bracket height and steepen the head tube angle by ~1.5 degrees. This will quicken the steering and make the bike less stable. This may be a good thing for summer riding. You can also get a +5 headset to lessen this effect slightly.

    That "dude" is Mike Curiak. Google him with "Iditarod" and see what you get.
