    Ragley Piglet Riders - Fork Travel Max?

    Hey,

    I've had a Piglet (X9) now for a while and am either considering upgrading the fork internals (Sektor R's) or possibly upgrading from 120mm+ to a different fork, maybe Revelations.

    Are there any experiences or input anyone has regarding higher than stock travel on a Piglet & & how far have you 'pushed the frame to its limits'?

    Any additional upgrade info would be 'cool' to read about or see also!

    Cheers.

    Yea man,

    I am aware of how it effects geometry; just wondering if anyone has any experience/comments regarding higher travel in application

    The main problem is going to be geometry. More travel will do as it says, give you more travel. It will suck up the bumps better and let you do that 98ft drop off you want so bad.

    ah, very good.

    well a jump from 120mm to 140mm slackens HT angle by less than 1 degree, enough to increase climbing difficulty but shouldn't be too much of a burden on the descent.

    But I think a travel increase may not be the optimal solution; the quality of travel is where I think I will focus attention for now.
