Unfortunately, I don't know the first thing about the sizing of forks in comparison to the frame. Not sure if my question is more belonging on a mountain bike thread or what, but figure there is someone on here who can help. Are forks universal in size? Are there any major red flags I'm unaware of in doing this?
Check out Venice Motor Bikes link here....he's built all kinds of bikes with suspension forks and disc brakes....an incredibly gifted guy ....
