    Pugsley Fork Options

    I'm currently building a Krampug Pugsley running 29x3" tyres but quite keen to be able to run a standard dynamo hub. The Pug 100mm spaced fork doesn't have the bottle cage mounts which I'm quite keen on so looking at fitting ECR or Ogre forks instead.
    Will there be a problem with doing this? Probably a dumb question but don't know a great deal about frame geometry.
    Pug and Ogre fork has 43mm rake whereas ECR fork has 47mm. All other measurements appear to be the same. Will there be much difference in the handling between the measurements?

    Any input greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Chris

    How about just fitting the rivnuts into the standard fork?? Coastkid has done this on many of his Pugsleys.

    This is a good idea.

    I would worry more about the axle to crown measurement changing than the rake. Changes there feel a lot less subtle to me.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.
