Have you thought about buying a set of 1.75" clamps, and shimming the .11 difference by wrapping a slice of tire tube or something around the stanchion where it clamps? That was my plan for some larger diameter forks I was considering.
I was planning on using your epoxied-clamp method on my green A-line, I thought you made a great evolution with that technique and wanted to try it. Did you have problems with it?

Rubber might be an option but only if he doesnt do a custom run... I mean rubber ll dry with the time and it ll probably sag a little too.
There is nothing wrong with my glued pelicam when used with a single crown fork, aside from the fact that the aluminium base is almost broken (shoulda used a thicker one) I ll remake it in the coming week.
The issue is just the lack of turning angle when you have a double crown fork, also when I was testing, if I push the box even further making a longer adapter to have better fork clearance the lipo box ll shake when you do sharp turns and doing so make the ride dangerous.
I still think the epoxy is very good for single crown, when I do the support again I ll hook it closer to the frame and a little lower.
BTW how and I supposed to remove the DP420 I already have without using heat that could pontencially damage the frame head?
How many kilos do have on your new bigger box?

Sure... I'll post back here with options.

Box shake would be a serious issue. Do you experience that in your current setup?

I got this group-buy 5404 wheelset from JRH yesterday, laced into 19" rims with Deestone 2.50" tires that he bought for my cromotor lace (which I ended up selling to BinLagen instead). The front is a 20mm through-axle for use on Boxxer forks. I only had time yesterday to take them out of the box for this pic and do a quick once-over, but they looked good. Unfortunately, this wheelset is slated for the Green Norco A-line frame, but I'm still working on the Red Frame, so this wheelset will go into storage for the moment.
JRH reports that my 5403, laced in 18" rims with 2.75" Gazelles, will be following shortly - and that wheelset will go on the red Norco frame built out in the previous pages of this thread. When that arrives, we will see progress again on the Red Norco!

whats the weight like? particularly with that front tire...

Hey I have a 5404 here that I would really love to get into a smaller rim than the current 26incher that is on it.
Something similar to what you have done in your pics. Either an 18 or 19 inch rim, with a nice tire like that.
Trouble is here in Oz I don't know where to find a similar rim? I am happy to buy from oversea's but still can't seem to locate any 18 or 19 inch rims.
Once I have the rim here, I can probably get spokes made at the motor bike shop and think I can build it up myself.
SO, can anyone please direct me to where I could buy a similar 18 or 19 inch rim similar to the ones in your pictures "Oatnet"?
Or, is there anyway I could order the same rim and spokes from the guy you got it from? And then get it posted to Oz, and I will just build it up here myself. That would be the most awesome solution!.

Think you could measure the total dia. with the gazelle tires on?

Diameter measures to exactly 23.5" - which I guess makes sense 18"+2.75"+2.75".
The widest part of the tread is 2.9"/74mm, so It turns out I could have fit the 3.00" gazelles instead... although 3" is the only size that is sold as rear only, all the others are front/rear by reversing the tread direction.

How does that work? It's not just a single direction for rotation if it's directional?
