Maybe Larry Mettler or some other fork gurus can chime in here - so here's my question.

Will the axle to crown height of the new 2005 Talas and Vanilla Forks be taller than the previous model years now that they can get up to a full 130mm of travel?

I had a Talas on my Belair for a bit but the short axle to crown height actually steepened my HT angle a bit when I really wanted to keep it the same as it was with the Psylo it replaced or slightly slacker.

I'm now running a Z1 FR on the Belair - but that fork is a heavy sucker - very stiff and burly though - but possibly a tad tall and defintely a lot heavier.

Is there a chart somewhere listing axle to crown heights of various trailbike/freeride forks that I could access?

Still trying to find the right balance up front on my Balfa.

Check out Maverick American's website

Fox 04-495mm (125mm travel)
Minute-505mm (130mm)
Z1- 518mm (130mm)
Psylo-501mm (125mm)

according to Maverick's handy little fork comparison chart. Actual heights may vary.
See their site for the excel file.

And what was the axle to crown height of the 04s?

Anyone know the A/C height of a Z1 FR?
