Bikes, recipes, and ranting
Why so much offset? That's +15mm more than the "usual" 36er offset of 80mm. 95mm would be equivalent to a 26er with 54mm offset or 29er with 65mm offset. Crazy slack head-angle? Do tell...
Double fork legs! Old school Springer-Style!!
There is no "usual" 36er offset, Jonathan. And since I've done more of them than anyone but Coker, if there was a "usual", I'd be the one to decide, no?Seriously, a lot of effort has to be made to avoid toe overlap for many people. Lots of offset and a slackish HTA are one way to do it without making things too ridiculously sluggish.
Maybe Don has thought about this because his newer fork jigs have a taller post for the blade phasing tower (can't think of what else to call it right now). I have been thinking that it would be nice to have something to clamp the blades to for segmented forks instead of just resting them on the round bar.
Walt it would be cool to see this bike as a roller!Todd
