Hey /n/ I posted a while back about converting this suspension fork into a rigid fork with eyelets. Someone suggested getting a 29er fork to compensate for the height of the suspension. I found a really good deal and grabbed one for dirt cheap brand new.
A few questions.
Can I keep my original 26inch wheel and just use it on the 29er fork? If I need a new 29er, any recommendations? I've been looking over CL, Facebook, Offerup, and Ebay. I'm a little lost, it would be great if I can keep my 26 and then my Axel to Crown should be similar to the original set up.
Here is the link the Marin Urban fork I ordered https://www.ebay.com/itm/Marin-Urban-Chromoly-Control-Fork-1-1-8-Disk-Rigid-Steel-Fork-29r-NEW-/202977038520?_trksid=p2385738.m4383.l4275.c10
The disc brakes look a little different than what the bracket is on the new fork. I think I just need to buy an adapter? Also what size of rotor should I get?
If I need to buy a new front disc brake system what does /k/ recommend? Something that isn't dirt cheap but I don't need anything gucci please!
Does anyone have any recommendations on good tires to toss on here? I would enjoy having the same brand and type on both the 26 rear and 29 front. No need to knobby tires anymore I want something for road please! Anything with Skinwall?
What are some really good fenders and rack for this thing?
Also any recommendations on a second set of wheels to toss studded tires onto?
My entire point for this build is to have something weird, unique, and dumb but also utilitarian.
