OLSEN CARBON EXPEDITION MTB FORK 142 x 12mm

With a rear wheel spacing for 142x12mm hub and rear wheel rear post mounts for disc brakes rear wheel, this fork will turn any mountain bike into an adventure bike packer. or you could go further?? How about a JUNGLE bike with FAT tyre "Passive" suspension and grip?

WHAT? WHY??

This idea is not new... However with so many FAT front hub "standards" why not just use a single speed rear wheel? This fork gives you options and turns your bike into something versatile, but it could also get you out of trouble.

This fork does a lot of things.

Expedition: It fits a rear wheel - so that you are always running a spare if your freewheel has mechanicals.

Jungle: - FAT on Front and skinny on the back - giving you a passive suspension. This is popular over splippery roots - in Jungles.

Dingle: having a rear wheel up front means that you can have some other gear ratio options for singlespeed. Load: with the posibility of a larger tyre on the front
