Knocked down the travel on this Sherman Flick to 100mm. Axle to crown height is lower. Now you can safely huck in the lower position. I managed to cram a 130mm spring in there, so it's nice and stiff, perfect for urban and DJ.

Last week I took a older Firefly down to 65mm, used the 80mm spring from a Sherman Jumper. I hadn't thought to take a picture of that.

If anybody is interested in taking the travel down, let me know. I can walk you through, or do it for a nominal fee.

we got the same fork sitting on the wall at the LBS
I did a little work to the internals. Basically made it a little more compliant with the increased spring preload. This fork started out at 150mm.

I have a breakout that I would like to permanently reduce to 100mm for a back up to my gold series II jumper.
You will most likely need to purchase a 130mm spring for a Sherman Flick or Firefly then. Or if you feel confident, it is possible to cut the spring down to the proper length. The travel reduction also involves the removal of the travel-adjust unit.

If you would like me to go into further detail shoot me an email at [email protected]
