extending the axle to crown lenght of a fork... bad idea?
I have a nice carbon CX fork with great clearance and a 410mm A-C.
I have a friend with an 'on-one inbred' 29er frame I can get cheap.
I'm liking the idea of building a monster cross type bike with canti's that I can throw some wide wheels on for dirt and my regular 19mm wide 700c's for a group road ride.
My concern is that most 29er forks are 450mm or so A-C so my cross fork is going to drop and tilt the head tube quite a bit.
So... I have lot's of spacers on the top, could I use a steel spacer at the bottom instead to effectively make the A-C 430-450mm?
Anyone done this?
I may look a little funky, but I am not worried about that! This thing will be a mutant anyway!
