    Intense has the 29er 5.5 coming out, but there is just not enough long travel 29er forks on the market right now.

    You can convert a DUC but you reduce the travel and the WB is at 130mm with a TA, mixed reviews on that. Manitou is coming out with some though.

    WB is upgrading its 130mm and some adjustable trave llenght forks are being planned and tested. Aside from that long traveled Evolve may have 140mm or even 146,05 mm 5,75" like 5.5 29 and mated with 130 WB fork why not? It might encourage more trail/AM 29ers t obe done not only light XC bikes. What do you think? Perhaps we should drop them a line?
