Yes it does, frames are designed around a certain length of fork. Putting a fork that is too long or to short onto a frame can create numerous handling issues and may cause frame failure.rich1374670x said:Does it matter what bike it is on?
So the stock fork was 100mm on those, so you probably want to stick with that. For under $400 there are both Manitou R7 and Drake forks that can be found for a bargain. The R7 is a lighter XC style fork while the Drake is more of a Trail fork that will be a stouter design but also heavier.rich1374670x said:K2 zed 4.0
Drake is a coil/air hybrid, using a coil spring with air as the pre-load (Rock Shox and Marzocchi have also used this system). The Damper on both the Drake and R7 is very good, one of the best.rich1374670x said:Which f series and which reba? How would you rate those 4? If cost was no factor and if it was a factor?
