IIRC, or at least the one on our Fargo is a high (long) axle to crown to match a suspension fork. I don't know if those other frames are made for that much suspension.

As far as other information, it gives your bike a nice ride. I think newer versions of it have accommodated fenders.

This is a suspension corrected fork made for frames with an MTB geometry. The axle to crown length on the Firestarter fork is 483mm, the average gravel fork is around 395-400mm. So no, you couldn't use it in any of the bikes you listed.

I am in the process of considering a custom build and looking for a fork too. So far the RodeovSpork is my leading contender (also easy to paint as it is available unfinished).  What else is out there that anyone recommends?
