Good afternoon! I need to replace the fork on a lugged steel road bike I'm building up for light touring purposes. It has a 700c (bent) fork on it currently, and I'm struggling to find a 1" threaded fork in 700c size that has enough clearance to run fenders and reasonably wide tires. It needs to have a steer tube length of 200mm, which also narrows the search significantly, and I'd prefer a lugged design. I'm wondering if using a 27" fork would be an acceptable option, using long reach brakes. It seems on the positive side that this would give me extra clearance for the front tire/fender, but on the possibly negative side, general frame geometry could be thrown off. It currently has a flat top tube, so a slight downward slope to the rear would be acceptable as long as the ride isn't greatly compromised. Your input would be much appreciated. Thanks!!
