Just found this thread, and I'm looking forward to seeing the final build! I'm thinking of doing a retro/modern build on my pro elite - basically everything modern except the frame. Anyone know what's the max suspension fork travel that can be used on a pro elite without screwing up the handling?
They were made for 60mm - mine's fine with 70mm but it will depend on all sorts of things.... like how much sag your fork is meant to run with etc....
Which fork do you want to use?
And my Pro-Elite could always use a Noodle if I decide to put cantis on it instead of Vs.
