I just picked up a 2013 Kona Unit (18") and I want to install a Manitou Tower Pro 29 fork on it. What is the recommended length/travel for this frame? 80mm or 100mm?

You could go either. A 100 will make it a little more oe a rally bike and a 80mm would make it a quick handling XC bike. I had a 100 on mine and I loved the way it rode.

Kona tech support recommended 100mm, so I threw the 100mm Reba from my FS bike on there and got a new Tower Pro for my FS. Just need to get a shorter top cap for the headset to lower the bars. I'll post a pic after I get it dialed in.
