I have a 1997 Scott Vail MTB frame (cromo, threadless headset). Back in 97 it came with a suspension fork thats since died. I have a rigid fork (chromo) off another bike I'd like to put on it; however, the rigid fork is not suspension corrected. I'm wondering if there's a way to put a spacer or two under the crown race to somewhat correct for the suspension? Any structure issues?
I have plenty of steerer tube above the head tube, so thats not an issue.
