This will run a Paul 135mm front hub – so in order to clear the disc rotor, it ends up having a REALLY wide crown. Snow fork type clearances, but there’s really not a good way around it with the disc.
I cut the lugs on the mill/chop saw, then clean them up a bit and slide them on to get everything fit up. Next step will be to clean everything (boooooring!) and then start welding. I’m waiting on some feedback from Brad about the tres-weird look first, though. Believe it or not, I’ll be doing *another* 36er soon… seems like a trend!
