hi everybody
i own a bike with 75-90 mm travel in the rear and 100 mm in front. i am thinking about upgrading my fork to the manitou black elite rtwd that has 90-120 mm of travel. i use my bike for xc and trail riding. what do you think, is 120 mm too much travel?

If you find it to be too much @ 120mm just lessen the travel (RTWD) .

Get it...

And go out riding....

You'll find the bike more slow to make it into the turns but the downhill stability and ride quality will go up as much you'll quickly get used to it.
