Anyone have any advice for someone considering a new fork?
I've always ridden 100mm fork, but lately have been considering a 120mm fork. I don't often do any major jumps/drops - but the trails I ride have several rocks, smaller drops and definitely a mixture of shorter ups and downs. If I had to say what "type of riding" - I'd say aggressive XC. I do weight in at 255 - so I'm a heavier rider, which means I'm not out winning any races...speed usually only comes from the downhill sections.
My bikes geometry has a 73 degree STA, and 68 degree HTA (although I don't know what travel of fork is used when the manufacturer gives those measurements). Manufacturer also ships the frame typically w/ a U-Turn fork with a range of 85-130mm.
Just don't know if 20mm is going to feel all that different.
