What fork? A lot of them can be easily be increased to 150mm. What frame? That would help us figure out if 140mm would make any real negative difference.
Thank you for helping me demystify.
I am building a Honzo ESD from nothing. I have a set of 29", i30 rims with a dropper post, shifter, and RD. That's it. The rest of the parts I need to source.
The fork I had my eye on was a Manitou Mattoc, adjustable from 120-140mm travel. It sold on CL before I could pull the trigger.
I just read a review of a guy who put a 130mm CC Helm on his and said it worked out good. Not sure what the bottom of the range is. 120 or 130 maybe? I saw a guy selling a Reba he listed as 150mm for a good price, but I didn't think the Reba had that much travel, I am thinking it's a 120.
Thanks again, this is suspension build since 2001.
