Here's a dumb question, but thought maybe some here would know.
I'm considering converting my old Rockhopper to a street rod, with a rigid carbon fork. I noticed there are lots of Cross forks out there for good prices, but not too many MTB specific forks. My existing (cheapy stock) Manitou forks only have about 2-3" of travel, so I would think that's not much of a problem.
Is it ok to use a Cross fork for converting to a street/light trail machine?
I plan to go with 26x1.75" Maxxis Overdrive tires. Will most Cross forks generally be wide enough?
