My girlfriend's brother is selling his Specialized Epic Large.

Can i put my 29er Fork in it and make it a 69er?
I have 2 29er Forks:

A Fox 10029er and a Reba 80mm 29er..

His frame size is a Large Specialized Epic Expert.

Can this be done?

He is meeting a seller tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. Central Time. I want to make sure i can do this so i can intervene and buy it from him..

Thanks as always,
Gregorio

ps. sorry i did not find anything in the search about this.

I'm no expert but I see no reason why you can't do that. It will take either one of those forks as far as I know.

Think about what it is going to do to the geometry.
Are the steering columns long enough?
Think again about the geometry.

maybe

Well I've seen more than one post on here commenting on a 120mm Fox fork on a epic with a 650b wheel and comments that it was great that way. Wouldn't the axle to crown of a 80mm 29 fork be similar to 26 120mm?

Talk, and thinking, are cheap, as they say. Buy the bike and try the conversion. In the worse case you un-do the fork and sell the bike. There's a good a chance it will work, but you have to be the one that evaluates the outcome by riding the bike.

These forums are too full of folks over thinking stuff.
