    Swamp green Krampus

    My new whip.
    God is this bike fun.
    1x10 with wolf tooth oval.

    Rigid is fun, but I have a hankering for a sus fork.

    Offsets, travel,a to c....I am easily overwhelmed.

    What works and what doesn't.

    Rigid is fun for sure, love the feeling of hammering down on the pedals and conquering hills. However, rocky descents not as fun on rigid. I put on a 110mm Pro Manitou Magnum form a Stache I scored on ebay at a good price. I'm very happy with it, didn't change geometry too much. Could still climb great and handles snappy! But it does not have a lockout, I do miss that...

    I just ordered a Manitou Magnum 100mm fork for my Krampus. It hasn't arrived yet, so I can't offer any feedback on how it rides, but here's my way of thinking that led me to get the 100mm fork. Surly said the original Krampus was suspension corrected for a 120mm fork. However, back when they said that, there were no 29+ forks, and a 120mm, 29" fork had around a 530mm a-c. The Manitou Magnum has a 530mm a-c for the 100mm version, and 550 for the 120mm. So, the 100mm is closer to what I believe the frame was designed for. Finally, in one of the Krampus threads here, someone posted a response they got from Surly when they asked about Manitou Magnum compatibility, and Surly said the 100mm was good, but they did not recommend the 120mm.
