Hi all, I’m hoping to upgrade to a new Patrol frame but my forks are 160mm Fox 36 performance. The Patrol is of course specked for 170’s. I have enquired and I can raise them to 170 but I’ll need a new damper and air shaft. SO, I’m the meantime could I run the patrol on 160mm forks or would that just be silly?

Thanks in advance!!

Its 10mm FFS, stick it on and go ride in the meantime.

What would be silly is if you hold out from riding because
you are waiting for advise over 10mm from a forum.

Ha ha I like you! That’s what I was thinking myself, I just needed someone else to confirm it.

Cheers man!!

Forums are full of half wits, myself included, who really is qualified to give technical advise ?
most tech advise given on forums are mostly based on idividuals opinions and no real
merit to back it up, a few exceptions perhaps, but in general theres a lot of codswallop.

My response is based on the fact that 10mm is nothing with regards to your question and I personally
could not see how it would prevent you from riding on such a set up.

If you've tried it already, how does it work?

Yes I’ve been running it this way for a few weeks now and it’s really good! Apart from a few pedal strikes the setup is super nice! FYI I also contacted Transition direct and they said it’s be no problem, go for it, so I did!

I'm thinking of doing this as well, i have a set of 160mm lyriks and could convert to 170 but it looks like I don't need to. Have you noticed any other difference apart from some pedal strikes? like would it in theory steepen the seat tube angle a little bit? Did transition mention anything, any warranty issues?
