I will double down on above said comment.
You may get snappier handling, but on the descent that extra inch is worth it!!
I ran a 120mm on my Niner Sir9 and, to quote LoverBoy, was "Lovin every minute of it...Lovin'"
Admittedly I am a travel junkie. I have an FS SS 29er, a 5" FS 29er and soon to have a 6" FS 29er, so grain of salt my O-pin-E-on.
got ya...thanks guys. I am considering a lefty conversion and I think those only have 80mm of travel. I race xc and xterra tris and was looking for something to drop some weight as well as improve my handeling.
