I have in the past, and it does affect the ride, but not as much as people tend to think. Remember that a 100mm fork generally has more sag than an 80mm fork, so the 1 degree change in geometry comes down to about .75 of a degree change in geometry.PeterThomas said:Hi there,
I'm currently waiting for my 03 Caldera frame to arrive. I've got some Fox Float forks which I'm running at 80mm on my Orange O2 at the moment -- I was wondering if anyone is running 100mm forks on an 03 hardtail frame and if so, is the geometry ok?
Basically, yes, the geometry is okay, but you will still notice a bit of a difference. The front wheel may wander on extended climbs, and that will be about all you notice.
