    Neet video



    Strange how 2 out of 3 factory riders are riding on fork that would "void warranty" if we did it.

    Thanks for posting, i missed this one on PinkBike..

    Your right, its interesting that so many factory riders are riding their Jekyll's with 170/180mm forks.

    I could be wrong, but it looks like only 1 (maybe 2) of the Jekyll's in this Over-Mountain team video has 150mm 32's fitted..

    I think you are right. I was watching for that this time. I wonder why cannondale is saying that they are to long. I think it has a bit to do with marketing, no reason to buy a claymore if you can run a 180 front fork and make the bike super slack and fast.

    I would guess its purely down to marketing, i can't see slightly longer fork causing any structural problems.. Almost all the competitors that sell frame sets in this sector normally suggest forks of between 140mm to 170mm on their 150mm travel frames.

    Its interesting to to also note that the Bike.de magazine measured the real rear travel of a Carbon Jekyll at 155mm. So its possible a 160mm fork could balance the front to back better..
