Fork for 105lb rider, 4"-5"

474 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Vespasianus

I need a fork for my wifes' FS bike. She weighs 105lbs. The Fox Float 32 appearently does not work with rideres under 140lbs - limited travel...

Any suggestions from light riders?

I think you will find a lot of threads that ask the same question. Just do a search for 'light rider' or something.

My one piece of advice is stick with an air fork. With a coil sprung fork it's hard to find coils that work with that light of a rider.

Marzocchi 44 TSTMicro
Fox F-Series RL
Rock Shox SID or Reba
Try a Manitou. Most of their air shocks use an air/coil system and you can get a light spring for her that should work well. TPC works well and can be tuned easily for her as well.
