hey everybody, i would appreciate your input on this one.

Would taking a bike with 4 inches of travel as stock, would it be a bad idea to upgrade to a fork with 7 or 8 inches of travel?:confused:
quite simply, yes.
the frame isn't designed to handle the kind of forces that much more suspension will generate.
it will change the handling significantly.
