So the Meta 5 is truly meant for a 140mm fork. The bike is already fairly slack, switching to a 160mm will make it even more slack and also raise the BB. While I cant totally get on board with the 160mm idea i know a number of riders that have done this, and have never seen any issues...this is all un-official of course. There is always the Meta 6 if you are set on 160!
