      How is it no one can tell us about the dampening? Not even on the Carver site!

    Anyone know where you can get some rubber to put over the bottom of the fork? I don’t this getting all chewed up and leaking oil.

      Ya, get those old Lizard Skins stanction protectors.

    And does anyone know how this will affect the geometry of the 2013 Mukluk? Right now the head tube is already at 69.5 degrees and I don’t know the math to add a few cm to the length and how this will modify it.

    What is the market for these forks? Do they only on Carvers or will they work with the new gen of fat bikes?
    -Trek Farley
    -Norco Bigfoot
    -Kona Wo
    -Specialized Fatboy

    This fork should work on pretty much all fat bikes. Just measure axel to crowd distances. Majority will have room these days.
