    if you still want to run 24x3 on the front, you can try to find a razor rebellion and snatch it's front forks. 3 and 5/8" clearance. the only issue would be that it has press fit bearings instead of bearing cups. so you'd have to make sure they fit or find the correct size bearing.

    This is crude but it worked to gain a little tire clearance.One solid smack at a time and it worked well.
    Truth is I could have passed on this step because the tire cleared by an 1/8th .

    left nice small clearance (dents) should look fine.I know they look a little rough in the pics but I reassebled it and lined it all up and it was barely noticable.
