anybody knows of a tapered fork that can be lower to 40mm ?

Get in touch with Sherbet, he's the king of super slammed forks. I think he's done a couple of X Fusions as well as Fox in the past.

We touched base a few pages ago. His best bet is an older model Rs/Fox, a current X-Fusion, or a Cane Creek Helm.

Pretty much any air spring fork, that has same airshaft in every travel length and the travel is adjusted by spacers, or as in X-Fusions case, by movable "unit" that takes it place by going thru the airshaft by pin.

Example:
Older Fox Float forks, Old style RS Solo Airs, some 2015 (ish) Marzocchi's (CR), Cane creek Helms, can physically be lowered pretty much till 0mm travel by just adding enough spacer to airshaft.

And with X-fusion you can use either Cane Creek clip in travel spacers, or drill new hole as high as wanted to the airshaft to get the travel that you are looking for.

X-Fusion has their own fork spacers too.

Hi,


I am looking for a frame with following specs:
Mandatory:
- 26"
- long top tube (22" or L size)
- high bb with a rigid fork (430 length)
- steep head angle (71°)
Nice to have:
- short chainstay (385-395mm)
- disc brake mount
- not too heavy
Would like to ride park/street trial with.

What frame fits ?
My thoughts are Dobermann Pinsher or Norco 250.
Any thoughts?

Thanks.

If you can live without the disc mount, I think the NS Capital checks a lot of those boxes.

Also, has anyone heard about these?

This company has been radio silent on their social media profiles and they didn't respond to a recent email I sent them, so I wouldn't hold my breath on them putting anything on the market.

Thanks, mate.
Sorry I meant I want some brakes. But U-brakes are not powerful enough for street trial needs.

I looked further and found the Octane 01 spark. Steep head angle, high bb... but maybe to short?
Do you know some other frames with a really steep head angle ?
They can be 10 years old though.

Yo guys, just wondering where I can find stickers to bomb my fork and helmet, seems to be tough to find mtb brands. Cheers, pic for attention

you can always use hydro brake rims if you REALLY want to ride street trials
