Ok then no one has these forks but in general but would 150 mm be ok?
Running 140 pikes at the moment but want something lighter.

You posted during a holiday for many and want an answer right away? Relax and wait for people to come back. On top of that, what you want to look for is not necessarily the travel, but the axle to crown height. If I'm not mistaken, those forks are a bit short for the travel, so they're likely ok.

Qouted a2c is 530mm so should be fine, some are running 55s and 36s though the LC is a little bit like ETA on the Marz huh so maybe not as flexible as Talas or ATA on the others where they might be able to run a lower A2C more regularly if they want to!

The axle to crown seems around the same as my pikes taking a rough measurement of 525 mm so I think they will be fine.

I rode the Pace version of those forks on a demo bike.

They were horrid.

Set at plush they would blow straight through their travel when rolling the wheel over a drop / down a step on the trail. Not at all confidence inspiring.

Pumped up with more air to stop terminal diving, they had no small bump compliance.

Horrid forks - I wouldn't touch them without being able to properly test them to see that DT have improved the proformance Pace originally built them with.

(I do howver like Pace's coil forks)
