The 5 Spot was designed around the 125mm Fox Vanilla. Check the axle-to-crown distance (the vanilla a-c was approx 495mm).Zip said:Will a 130mm front fork change the geometry of the 5 spot to where it will not handlle as well as if it had a 125 or 120mm fork? I would like a bit more travel..
130 and 125 vanilla have the same AC for their given travel setting, so a 130 niller will be 5mm taller than 125. And what Blue Shorts said in the second statement, it's more capable way of explaining it than what I said.Blue Shorts said:I believe the 130mm vanilla has the same a-c as the 125. You should check. ... Using a fork with a longer a-c will change the handling to make it handle better at higher speeds, but it will slow the lower speed steering ...
