I posted this over in the Jamis forum and thought I would post my question here as well. I am in the process of building up a 2003 Dragon. I was wondering if it would be a problem to put on a 100mm fork. I believe Jamis is putting on 80mm travel forks on their stock bikes. Jenson has a really good deal on the Skareb Elite and was hoping to snatch it up at $219. I am looking for a light fork and I currently have a Black Elite on my Dakar XC and looove the 100mm of travel.

I upgraded a Trek 4500 from an 80mm fork to a 120mm fork. I love this setup more each time I ride. I run a Black Platinum adjustable from 90mm to 120mm. 90 for uphill, 120 for downhill. I have nothing but good experiences. It is true that your handling might suffer slightly, but I don't know if you'd even notice it. Good fork choice on your Dakar by the way. Anyway, I think you should snatch the Skareb Elite. I even heard about a guy who ordered one from Jenson and ended up with an SPV Elite. You can find that post under Let's Talk About Shocks. Good Luck. Mikey42186

It's the BANG of the BUCK price

I just ordered the Elite for from Jenson Yesterday and I shold see if I got it with SPV.

I personally think its a good price for that fork, I have to find the kit for the FIRM status in the fork to match my body weight at 210. I think that fork is a bang of the buck for 3.2, I never seen that low before

( I just got back into mountain biking after many years of playing college football and coaching in HS Level)
