    110mm setup on a Rize 3?

    Did any one try setting up a Rize frame with a 110mm (or 100 mm) fork?
    How will the frame behave?

    I have RS Pike U-turn and adjust travel depends on terrain. 120mm is working really good for fast twisty single tracks but I never went below that.

    I imagine the steeper head and seat angles will give you better handling in the curves and uphills, while robbing a bit from the downhill abilities - possibly a good net gain for the right body and riding style. alex_k's experience suggests at least the fast handling part down to at least 120mm.

    Hopefully someone has tried your proposed combination and will chime in since there has got to be a travel length below which things start to get worse overall - hard to know what it is w/o experimenting, though.

    I can barely get my mouth around it.
