Fork Axle To Crown Lengths

Postby The Northern Monkey » Thu Dec 13, 2012 18:59 pm

If anyone has one of the below forks, please could you measure the axle to crown while fully extended?
I can't find it on the web...

Fox 36 180mm

Rockshox Lyric 170mm.

Thanks :)

Nevermind, found it.

Fox 36 180mm A-C is the same as Lyric 170mm.

Edit: no its not. damn! :lol:

How important is axle to crown length?

Would 1cm make a huge difference?

Yeah found the lists eventually.

I always thought that the Fox had a much shorter axle to crown, which I what I was banking on so i could get the Lyrics.
If you look at the Fox, he axle is almost an inch up the leg, but I guess the leg must just be longer.
Don't want to spend almost 1k on a set of forks, but I want lighter forks.

However, if Works Components manage to produce the bottom angleset cup for the Canyon (work in progress at the mo), it could still work.
