    Lager SE and mtb fork

    If I build up this frame with this fork , do you think barspins with a 700c wheel will be possible? Also, is there a disadvantage to using an mtb hub up front instead of a track hub?

    use a SE landing gear 26" fork...


    front hub spacing is still 100... so use a standard 700c wheel.

    I understand that the spacing is the same, but wouldn't an xt hub laced to a 700c rim be stronger than a formula laced to the same rim? Is there any reason you suggest that fork over the surly besides weight? Is 100g's noticeable?

    Stronger for what? You doing 360s down 8 stairs? You weigh a lot?

    I have 32 h Profiles laced 3x to Deep Vs and have yet to have an issue with the front. Now the rear is a different story.

    Weight for trick riding is negligible. Weight weenies belong in crits and on the track. Not on the street.

    No, I only weigh 145. I can't afford nice profile hubs, so I would have to get formulas and I figure an mtb hub is better than a formula.

    I feel the same way about weight. I just couldn't figure out why you suggested the SE fork over the Surly. I actually like the looks of the SE better. I just didn't know if there was any particular reason why you suggested it.
