    What does this translate to? "Suspension correct for a minimum 80 mm travel fork."

    Right now my bike is fully rigid. I like how it is.. however I've considered buying a suspension fork to swap out for longer rides. In human terms what does "Suspension correct for a minimum 80 mm travel fork" actually mean. Thanks!

    It means the geometry of your frame won't change (much) if you throw an 80mm fork on there. If you go bigger, and put on a 150mm, your bike's handling will be all wonky, and you'll be angled back a bit more due to the longer fork.
