Building a rigid mountain bike up -- already have a fork, will it work?
I don't have pictures up yet - but am thinking of getting a steel or Aluminum mountain frame and using parts I already have to build it. I built up my Surly LHT and had no issues with it, but it already came with a proper fork that I simply had to cut a bit.
I already have a mountain fork (steel - rigid) but was wondering how you go about checking to see if it will work with a different frame..? It seems that some measuring is necessary in case the head tube of the frame is too long, thereby making the fork too short.
Thanks for any tips or advice to avoid pitfalls!
