    Run a 100 mm Lefty DLR w/a 135 mm Manitou

    Can you run a 100 mm Lefty DLR fork on a frame w/a 135 mm Manitou 3-way when the original was a 135 mm fork? To what effect...? Thanks

    Measure the axle to crown distance on both forks. For every inch shorter, the head tube angle will increase about a degree (get steeper and quicker handling).
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!
