I am doing a build up on a Salsa Dos niner frame. My goal is a twenty niner that can handle some pretty rough stuff... no crazy jumps, but definitely MORE than cross-country. What I want to ride is probably just short of needing an all mountain frame and I've never been a big fan of rear suspension so the Dos was the perfect compromise for a frame. Weight's not my BIGGEST concern, but I don't want a 35 lb beast either.
My technique for the rough stuff is to focus on getting the front wheel over it fast and hang on for dear life as the rest of the bike follows.
What would be a good fork for this build up? I have seen travel ranging up to 120mm. I know I probably want more than the 80mm cross-country travel... but I am not sure if I need 120mm.
