Looking at most new frames I don't see anywhere what fork size (travel, 100mm, 130mm, 140mm, etc.) is the correct one for the frame... how is that determined for a new frame? :madman:

TIA!!!

Ideally you should go to the manufacturers site to see if they have more detailed specs. Unfortunately, there are quite a few that still don't list fork length.

For a current model XC hardtail frame (like those you list), you're probably pretty safe with 100mm, and can probably get away with anything from 80 to 120.

Both those frames geometry make me think they should use a 80-100mm fork. Not sure how to judge other then geometry other then emailing CRC and the ebay seller and seeing what they say.
Emailed the ebay Seller and they said 80-100mm just like you guys said! Thanks!
