    Schwalbe Big Apple Front Fork

    Anyone know where I can get a black front fork for a normal mountain bike that can fit a 26" x 2.3" Schwalbe Big Apple Tire, or recommendations for one? Thanks.

    Does anyone else use these tires for their bike?
    If so, what size are they? Thanks.

    Surly Instigator and Surly 1 x 1 forks both fit a 2.7" tire. Those are the only ones I know off hand.

    Only 2.3" wide-almost any fork should fit?

    I just measured my Schwalbe 2.3 Super Moto (same tire-more or less-as your Big Apple).It is just 2.3" wide no surprise. Most forks will accomodate a 2.3" wide tire, especially one with no knobs. My Manitou Black Elite forks have about 2.6-2.7" of room.
    What fork are you using that won't take a 2.3" tire? Is the fork brace being rubbed by the tire? If so take a grinder to it.

    i am getting a cadenza from dahon, so it won't be able to take a 2.3" tire in the front, at least not likely


    i would like to add a 2.3" wide to the back as well, not sure if it is true that most bikes can commonly accomodate a tire that wide

    it is supposed to be the same frame as the dahon jack

    do you know if these have been adjusted to compensate for suspension forks being switched out?

    my current bike will have just a regular rigid that I want to switch out...

    it currently is holding a 1.5" thick tire...
