and it will be uncomfortable this frame needs 80mm fork
you shuld lower you Fox! i got a new argyle 100mm and its bad for the frame so i lower it to 80 or 60..

honestly i don't think that it will do to much damage i know the mob are made for 100mm-80mm but you will do damage if you are doing like 10 ft drops to flat

I doubt it will cause any damage however the ride quality will suffer. If a frame is designed for 80-100mm travel, exceeding that limit will give you sloppy steering and the bike won't respond as easily as it would with a proper travel fork.

well if you only ride street park why do you have that much travel?

You will be fine w/ 120mm fork...I would not worry about it, the frame can handle it.

well i don't, problem is, the only one who is qualified to lower my Fox is the distributor.
And they are quite far from where i live, and sending it, is an option i cant spend money on right now.

But i will eventually, just wanted to make sure it wont harm the frame by that time.
