NX250 USD Fork Swap

The CR uses a 12 mm front axle and the NX uses a 15 mm axle. It just so happens that the CR80 rear axle is 15mm and is exactly the right length, ya

Caliper

I thought of that too, but a lot of bigger bikes use the same caliper and pads. I'll know better as I road test it. Worse case, I adapt the NX caliper.
