    27.5 fork on a 26in glory

    Hi guys need a little help here. I just picked up a 2014 giant glory 2 comes with a domain in the front and kage in the rear. Im going to upgrade the suspension soon and i saw this Rockshox Boxxer Team 27.5" New No PCKG > Components > Frames, Forks and Suspension > Suspension Forks | Jenson USA

    Pretty good deal imho but will i have problems? Im still going to run 26in tires. My friend said it will work, it will just slacken the front a bit.

    Thanks for the help.

    AFAIR, difference between Boxxer 26 and 27,5 is just rake/offset. So, since 27,5 fork rake is slightly bigger than 26, HA should, actually, be slightly steeper. However, we talk about 3-4mm rake difference, bo HA change may not be even visible.
    Am I right? ;>
