    You can from from a frame loading point of view (shorter fork means generally less stress load). BUT, it wil make the head angle steeper (which is already pretty steep on that model I believe) and your front/rear suspension probably unbalanced. I would not do it, a 120mm fork suits the bike much better I think. Especially for geometry and since the BMC rear suspension design works really well IMHO a 100 fork will struggle to keep op with the rear.

    Cool thanks I think I will just sell the Fox 32f100 and get a longer fork.

    When I had the 07' TF01, I had a Talas 100-120-140. I always left it at 140, but sometimes my buddies would mess with the travel and switch it down to 100. I didn't know it was set at 100 and rode down a trail and almost went OTB on a rough area.

    I did notice a significant improvement in climbing on the 100 setting, though.

    I think a Talas/U-Turn would be the best choice for that particular frame.
