    Fox F80rl fork

    Hey guys, I found a used Fox F80RL 80mm. I could get it for about $200. The person said its from a 2010 bike. He said the seals could be replaced a little bit of oil seeks out but nothing major. he said it might even be the stanchions getting lubricant. I have just 100mm suntour xcm on my bike now, I read reviews on the fox f80rl and it sounded like a good fork. Let me know what you guys think, Thanks!

    I wouldn't go with a shorter travel fork, especially considering that you will need to immediately replace the seals and change the fluid. A shorter fork will steepen up the head tube a bit and lower the bottom bracket, causing the bike to be a little less capable on the downhills and maybe a touch too quick steering as well as having less travel to absorb the bumps. In my experience, most bikes often work better with a slightly longer fork than stock. So if you can find a 100mm or 120mm Fox fork, that would be something to try.
