I have a Surly Pacer, and I want to put a front disc brake on it. The Pacer fork's axle to crown length is 371mm. So far I've come up with three options:


Fits the bill but super expensive

SJS Cycles:

The axle to crown distance is a bit much at 380mm, but price is more my style.


If I use the 26" Disc Trucker fork, the axle to crown is 376mm. Will this even work?

Which is my best option? Any other suggestions? It seems that there are very few options out there for 1 1/8" steerers.

    The 5mm difference is irrelevant.
