PVD Rigid 29er Fork
This is part of my first solo effort at framebuilding. I have been part of teams building frames, but this time it's all me.
The bike is a silly rigid niner. I got a nice deal on tubes, and wanted to try some geometry tricks. I do not take this bike seriously. It is a first try and will probably end up as my wifes work bike.
16.75" Axle to Crown, axially to steerer.
15" axle to bottom of steerer, axially to steerer.
7 degree blade angle, on center.
Nova niner fork blades.
The fork is way to stiff, even as a rigid fork. I will have to make a new fork that is more compliant.
It does look better on the bike, than off the bike.
Fitting the disk tab. Still some trimming to do.
Welded up. Note the breather hole welded over.
