Giro fork swap

I just bought a giro a20 and was wondering if anyone has swapped the giro a26 fork to a a20 giro. If this is possible I would like to run both 700c and 26" wheelsets for different riding styles that I do. I appreciate any help that I can get. Bought this bike with both road and gravel riding in mind

    I don't think Bacchetta would recommend it cause it changes the geometry but lots of people have done it. The big problem is heel strike having the front tire so close to the petals. Probably a "hard strike" (petal to tire) with a 700c tire. Some have used the 24" wheel on the front but they are hard to come by. You might be able to use a larger fork that you can shim down a bit to create more clearance. Not sure how that would handle. The best "road" front wheel for a Giro 20/Carbon Basso is a 451 rather than the 406. A bit larger diameter and there's a few good tire choices that are 1 1/8" to 1 3/8" wide.
