    ... and if we just ... Had a sneaky suspicion

    Went to Windham world cup this weekend and talked to the Cannondale race team tech and he told me ALL Rizes are 140 mm of travel Including the pbr lefty I knew the rear travel was measured to 145mm. The Rize is really a 140mm bike but was advertised as 130mm. The only difference in the new forks is the opi and upgraded guts. I always thought that the bike felt like more travel than advertised
    Early to bed early to RIZE makes a man healthy, wealthy <(scratch that) and wize.

    It has been discussed/posted/confirmed here months (if not years) ago too so it's not a big surprise.

    Thanks danoalb. I did not know that.
    When you say ALL RIZES, does that mean even for the 2009 Rize is 140mm or just all the more recent ones? Great stuff.

    True that

    All Rizes starting from the very first one are 140mm at both ends.
