Hi,

just after any advice from anyone who had put a 120mm fork on a new Anthem Advanced. Planning on buying a 27.5.1 Model in Med and putting 120mm fox floats on; a few questions
1. Can the 100mm forks be converted.
2. If not what steerer would the new forks need.
3. How is the geometry and ride affected.
Look forward to some feedback. Cheers

1. No
2. Standard tapered steerer. Get a new headset.
3. It'll slacken the bike out by about a degree. Steering will be slowed down. BB will rise a bit but minimally.

Thanks for the feedback, that's good to hear.
Did you find it made much difference to your riding position/geometry. As I will get the Advanced 1 with the non-convertible Fox Float I want to find out as much as I can before I commit to new forks/headset/stem etc.
Cheers

The recon on the lower level Anthem's are convertible to 120mm, even has air settings on the legs for both travel ranges. I believe any Reba model is convertible as well to 120.

I think a 120 fork may make it more capable in the rock gardens? I have a 275. 1. It is totally capable out of the box but I think for riding in New England more fork and beefier tires maybe 2.35s to replace the 2.1s. Hearing good things about Hans Dampf's?
Just off the trail today and the bike is easy to roll for 3+ hours in the technical and mixed terrain here.
The Anthem is fast and fun.
