Erm...no :oops: I'm going to try it with 26ers. Tyre choice is very restricted.
I am a little worried it isn't going to work...or just look stupid.
I have checked with Jim Kish and the forks are quite a massive 450mm A to C. I can't use my 420mm Viscious forks that will upset the geometry.
Hey ho....we'll see.

Hope it works ok with 26" wheels for you,that frame is 8) Thats the only problem with these different standards,it takes ages for good tyres to become available :cry:

Just look out for the Ritchey posts, made by Nitto and come in nice long lengths, and if you don't like the ritchey logo then get the brasso out!
