There is a 95-140 U-Turn fork on the Carbon 456 I ride. Unless the terrain is VERY rough, I prefer it aT 110-120mm.Is anyone out there running a shorter fork on the carbon 456 ? I ran mine with a 140 mm fork but I have dropped it down to 120 and have yet to try it out . I am just asking if anyone has run a 120mm fork at all times and how did it feel ?
Do not get too hung up on the HTA. How the bike actually rides on the trail is more important.Presslab,
You hit the nail on the head with the handlebar height . That is my only concern with the fork lowered to 120mm , I am taking it out tomorrow morning and I will give an update after the ride . IMHO , the fork travel is not as important on a HT so the HA at 67.5 and I will run the air a little higher with less sag than 25% to hopefully keep it a little closer to 68 degree it will rip on the smooth trails with occasional root and rock sections .
