So you had a front fork on it and switched it back to rigid? How come? I'm thinking of putting front suspension on my MUSS. Thanks!

The suspension fork i had on it was a temporary thing. It was a really shitty fork. Suspension is nice, id recommend nothing more than 80-100mm of travel to maintain geometry. I did a 650b conversion and the rigid fork just made sense. Also love the fun and simplicity of a full rigid single speed.

Also, in theory the 650b wheels will do part of the job of smoothing out trails that could also be done with suspension. Either way they're fun bikes!

nice! maybe drops make it more nice.. *just honest advice

Posted over 7 years ago

Zeb_pepperoni

Zeb_pepperoni says:

hell nah, its mtb geometry, drops would look funks. one day wanna make it a real race hardtail with a suspension fork and everything. if it was a true cyclocross bike than drops would be in order
