Evening all - not getting enough use out of my Langdale pursuit - 10 miles or so and the neck ache gets pretty uncomfortable.
Frame was designed to accept a 650c fork - question is: can I swap this over to a 700c fork and if so how do I calculate the fork rake so that the wheelbase is approximately the same length? (will need to buy an appropriate set of forks if this is doable) Also the frame geometry would also be altered - would this mean that the ride (stability, cornering, weight distribution) is all sent out of kilter?
Anyone got any experience or gut feelings if this is worth taking further? Cheers all...
