I"m looking to upgrade my '05 FSRxc. The Manitou Axel Comp will be shot soon and I'm not bothering to service it..but rather replace it (hopefully) with a Fox or Rock Shox. The Fox Float R or Rock Shox Revelation 426 U-turn would do just great. Both are 130mm with the Revelation being adjustable down to 100mm(?) I've read positives and negatives about increasing the front travel on the FSRxc. Has anyone attempted to up the travel in the front and/or rear? The Specialized techs say its risky considering they don't test them higher than 100mm. Other riders tell me as long as the geometry is kept the same front and rear, you should have a problem. Any thoughts on this? I'm really looking to get a new fork for performance and hopefully some weight reduction. Would like the versatility of more travel ..at least another 20mm.
