does anyone have any input?

Manitou Dorado - 591mm (203mm setting) or 567mm (180m setting)

Avalanche DHF 7.5 - 558mm (525mm min)
Avalanche DHF 8.5 - 597mm


Change in fork height - 20mm = 1 degree approx (depending on length of wheelbase. Longer bike = less noticeable change in HT angle degree. Shorter bike = more noticeable change in HT angle degree.

I want to go to a 180mm fork from a 130mm. The bike is a big hit with 6and a half inches of rear travel. the head tube angle can be adjusted by the rear shock mount. So it runs at 69 degrees right now but I can drop it to 67 degrees. My theory is that if I put the bike at 67 degrees it will go back to 69 degrees with a 180mm fork. I'm not worried about my bb height I have already figured that out.
thanks

Hey!

Thinking of changing my fork on Kona Steely. currently has the stock 289 tora u turn coil. 509mm A2C

i contacted Kona asking if a 520mm A2C would be ok, they said no. I'm guessing any bike manufacturer would though, to cover themselves if anything does happen?

do lots of people run slightly longer A2C forks without problems?

How much of a difference can i get away with before there really is a change in stress?
i mean it seems to me that you can get a 10mm change just by running a different tyre combo... so why not a fork?

(by the way i am not intending to do big hucks with this bike just light FR)


Cheers!

Putting a longer travel fork on will slacken the geometry even more. I would guess though that on a big hit, the geometry (head tube angle) is based off of a 180mm fork rather then a 130mm fork (unless its a really old model)

So I can change rockshox Domain 180 for boxxer without messing with geometry (theres 3mm difference). Do I get it right?

Answer to your question is yes, about 10mm more on the 27.5.
