26" sus fork onto 700c road tourer - advice?
Hi all, I'm a cheapskate and don't want to shell out for a MTB, but toe overlap on my tourer is killing me when I go off road. I'm thinking of moving a 26"-wheel fork onto it to decrease overlap and thought this might be the place to ask advice.
Head angle 71 deg on tourer
Fork is a low-level Suntour, looks like about 75mm travel, could be a little less.
Head tube looks a similar level on both bikes, maybe 1-2 cm lower on the tourer.
Both 1 1/4" threadless so fork should drop out fine.
