is there anybody that makes a good carbon rigid fork for 650b tire size that has a straight steerer? I'm wanting to convert my mountain bike into a hybrid where I can ride it in road events and also ride the gravel roads and pea gravel trails around town. but since my frame will not take a tapered steerer there isn't a whole lot of carbon forks available in the mountain bike world for this thing because everything is being made with tapered steerers nowadays. so I thought maybe I could find a good rigid carbon fork with a straight steerer for a 650b tire and frame set. any thoughts?
I can't remember my numbers now. I used to know that. I want to say 490? I know I had a salsa cromoto Grande 29er fork on there before. And Jamis told me that axle to crown would be fine. I believe they said up to 500 was ok. the salsa fork is now on my single speed mountain bike so it's not available. I want to keep this bike flexible. I want to be able to ride rode rides with it but if on a whim I feel like entering a cross country race I would like to have the ability to throw my Nobbies back on the rims and go do that. So I don't want around fork that can't handle being off the road. on the other hand I have no intentions of jumping or dropping on this bike.
