    Less than 135mm of travel is below average.

    According to this site, 135mm is the average front travel for Snow Mountain Bikes.

    The Surly Moonlander is a 26 inch Hardtail bike. It has 135 millimeters of front travel, which is the average for all Snow Mountain Bikes (MTB).

    Riding Fat and still just as fast as I never was.

    Proof that Surly is bringing out a suspension fork before Fox and RS.

    I don't think they understand 135mm is the width of the hub. Oops I guess not everything I read on the Internet is true. Well at least I know now.
    Still cleaning my Fatback.
    It's a life style.
