You tell us, you're the one with both. :sneaky:

Oh I will for sure, but one is folded up in its packaging and the other is on the bike just now (and I’m in the opposite island to both for another 3 days).

Was thinking if my new front tyre was going to be narrower than the rear then I might have to rethink my plan :butbut:

37mm stanchioned enduro/freeride fork? 180mm in 27.5 and 170mm in 29? Adjustable down to 150? Evolved from the mattoc?

It'll be called the Manitou Pulaski.

Happy to confirm that both are the same size (57mm across knobs, 56mm across casing)
So 2.24 rather than 2.3 :D
