Default Re: Cranbrook Specs (sorry guys)

I.E. fit 20" forks on a 24" frame. Could this be done with the cranbrook?

Stay away from rough patches in the road and treat it with respect and a Cranboob will last a long time.

They are really cheaply done) bikes.
YES they ARE cheaply done BUT some of us with NO JOB and NO income have NO choice and IamThebear asked some simple basic questions which nobody wanted to answer because you were so determined to make your point that the Huffy is a BAD start.

Well some of us can NOT make another start. So why don't you GIVE the dimensions that IamThebear asked for and stop rubbing his nose in his HUFFY

I signed off this group after suffering through all of the NON-answers to IamThebear's Inquiry deciding that the group was drunk on the smell of it's own cork instead of a community that SHARED. View my history and you will see since then my posts have been ZERO.

I DO know from MEASUREMENT that after-market spring forks wont fit a Huffy whose steering post is .996" and after-market steering posts are a good 1 mm FATTER.

i have successfully applied after-market luggage racks and front baskets and LED lights to the much maligned Huffy with NO fit/function problems.

I am sorry if you judge my answer harsh and uncaring but I have a motto: Words MEAN things, and IamThebear's words were not responded to (he ASKED for dimensions) and the whole thread seemed to this novice to be rather selfish

I apologize if I have misjudged, but on the surface, that's the way it was perceived.
