I have a 03 Monocog and I also have a 02 Rockshox Duke XC with U-turn. I want to mate the two together but I don't know if the Redline is suspension corrected or if it will screw up the handling alot or not. Also will I be able to use all 100mm of travel? Thanks for any advice/opinions guys.

I ran a 2001 SID XC with 80mm of travel on my 2002 monocog frame and it worked fine. A 100 mm fork may slow down the handling a tad but, IMO, not enough to not use the fork. Throw it on there, see how it works; if you don't like it, put the rigid back on.

I stuck a 'Zoke Marathon S 100mm fork on my '02 Monocog and love it. Redline specs say it is corrected for an 80mm fork w/ a 72 degree head angle. The 100mm fork slows it down a bit, but will put it on par with a Surly, etc. with an 80mm fork. I personally think the bike handles awesome with a 100mm fork.

I've heard of folks going all the way to a 120mm without a problem, also the few(read 2) folks I know who went with the recomended 3 inches of travel( from the redline website ) found it too steep at times...
I rode mine with the rigid fork for awhile before putting the 100mm fork and loved it. It handled pretty sharp. Coming from a BMX background, I like steeper head tube angles though. If I could just find a frame with the same geometry with an EBB, disc tabs and the ability to run fatties out back.....
