    Upgrading Fork on GT Force

    I recently was forced to upgrade my fork due to my original mag32 140mm fork started having issues. I'm consider upgrading to a Fox 32 Talas or Float but I want to go with 150mm travel. I'm wondering is there any reason not to go up 10mm on the front the 1.0 and 2.0 gt force all have 150mm in the front. The rear is advertised as having 6inch of travel on all the models.

    I don't want to change the geometry of the bike but the way I see it if the upper models run 150mm fork I don't see why not to upgrade to that. If the 1.0 and 2.0 wouldn't have 150mm I wouldn't even consider it.

    Get a Pike!

    If the 1.0 have 150mm then its ok.

    I had the GT I-drive 5 (same as a force but with 140mm rear). Mine came with a 120mm fork, I uprgaded to a Pike with 140mm and no regrets. I wont ride a Fox fork by choice, though I might have to as all the new bikes I am looking at are speced with them.

    I had the U-turn Pike for a while, never used the travel adjust or the lockout for that matter. Then got a Air Pike, best fork I have ever ridden on, period.
