I'm about to buy a 575 frame in large. I heard somewhere that I should use a 130 mm fork with it. Is this true or cna I use my Fox 100RL (100 mm travel)?
120mm will be fine as long as you don't run too much sag.Destroy said:How bad will a 120mm fork work out? I really love the features and feel of my Manitou Black Platinum IT 120 which I want to transfer to my new 575 frame.
What would happen if a person would put a 15mm spacer UNDER the lower steering head cone to lower the fork in the frame?
nothing good. what would you mount the crown race on? If you are really bent on this idea: first, try a Cane Creek S3+5, the bottom cup extends 5mm lower than it needs to, doesn't give you the 15mm you where talking about, but helps. If you really, really want more, find a machine shop to make you an extension, a piece you'd press into the lower head tube that would give you the extension but still let you mount the bearing where it needs to be wrt the fork. I'm not sure it would be safe to do this with the full 15mm, but with a the S3+5 you could get closer. Serotta used to make these out of Ti, but I haven't seen them in a while.Destroy said:What would happen if a person would put a 15mm spacer UNDER the lower steering head cone to lower the fork in the frame?
