I'm saving up for either a MootoX YBB or MootoX RSL. In the interim I'm trying to get a few big parts that I can use on the new bike when I'm able to order it while also using them on my current YBB 26. I started by getting a 29er wheelset built up. I currently have Specialized Burrough CX tires mounted to them and they fit my YBB 26 and work well for road/fire road training.
I'm looking at getting the White Bros. Rock Solid. I called them and they said the 465mm size fork would work on both my YBB 26 and a MootoX when I'm able to get it. They said the 465mm size (axle to crown) would be the equivalent of a 100mm travel fork on my YBB 26 and an 80mm travel fork on the MootoX. Also said I could run a 29er mtb tire/wheel up front on my current YBB 26 if I wanted to with no clearance problems.Thought it might be a neat way to try out a 96er setup.
Anyone on the forum run the Rock Solid fork? If so, how do you like it? I'm currently running the Fox F32 Series RLC 100 fork. I'm sure switching to rigid will take some getting used to. Any other forks I should look into such as the DT Swiss XRR 470 or the Niner carbon fork?
If I get the 465mm Rock Solid fork and cut the steerer tube to run it on my YBB 26 will I be able to switch it to either a MootoX YBB or a MootoX RSL with no problems? Can anyone think of any other issues? Am I crazy to switch out my plush 100mm travel fork for a rigid carbon fork?
