Cpl more xtracycle questions
#1- Does anyone have a saved copy of the pdf owner's manual? It's not on the site, you follow the link and there's no file found. If so I'd really appreciate it if you could pm me and I'll send you me email address (I called them and asked them to send me one but haven't heard anything yet).
#2- I understand the rear doesn't have a ton of clearance for 700c wheels, but I still like the idea of a 700c wheel up front. I was wondering if anyone ever took a mtb frame designed around an 80mm fork and put a cx or "hybrid" rigid fork up front with a 700c wheel and a 26" in the rear? I've been looking at axle to crown ratios of 80mm forks and 700c canti forks and it seems the average difference is about 5cm. That is the 80mm suspension fork is 5cm longer than the 700c hybrid fork. So off-hand it doesn't look like a great idea, but I was wondering if anyone tried something like this anyway.
I'm not close to building my xtracycle yet, and most likely the first version will be off a 700c frame I have lying around, but in researching I've found a ton of 26" xtracycles, a few 700c, but nothing hodge-podge so I'm just curious.
