i think your point is well made, and i was aware of possible issues in using these forks. my plan is to get everything in place, level out the stance, ride it, adjust the suspension, then ride it again. there are so many changes on this bike it would be hard to isolate the effect of just one. seat-of-the-pants engineering, but this is a low buck build with used parts and if something doesn't work as intended, it doesn't ruin your day to go a different direction. so i'll see how it rides, then go from there.
