Hi bikers,

I am building a Megatower and need advise as it’s my first FS bike, and my riding style mostly prefer is downhill/enduro. Should I go for 170mm or 180mm?

Thanks in advance!

175mm compromise. Its 10mm your undecided on just choose one,
cant see it causing to much of a headache which ever you choose.

Looking at the SC website they come stock with a 170. I'd stick with that. Plus doing any climbing on a 180 fork sounds like no fun anyhow.

Good luck.

180mm but might void your warranty

Previously owned a mega tower and ran 160mm forks on mine and ran it in high. Was plenty of travel but would of put 170mm for slacker HTA / greater downhill performance
