    Suspension corrected fat fork?

    Does such a thing exist? Want to convert my yelli screamy to fat front as a first step into the fat world but the salsa fork is 468mm and i reckon i need at least 480mm based on Canfield's geometry.

    I doubt you'll find that 12mm difference critical. In fact, you may prefer it.

    Tis a valid point, over analysing i guess.

    I prefer a sharper head angle on my fatbikes (which is what you would have). Seems to help counter the selfsteer effect on cambers.

    I've also since worked out that the numbers on canfields website are likely unsagged and therefore the enabler probably isn't that far off a sagged 80mm fork.
