    30mm more height in the front: will it change something?

    I've removed spacer in my front fork to gain some travel (80mm to 100mm) on my Trek fuel ex8. I'll soon be changing my front tire from a wormdrive (1.9 semi-slick) to Schwalb Hans Dampf 2.35 so should rise the front end by another 10mm.

    Beside the gain from the tire and travel itself for trail-riding, will the slight change in position will affect the riding quality of my bike?

    Likely it will improve it... but there won't be much change (slightly slacker head angle, slightly higher bottom bracket). Also, what year ex8? I only recall 120 and 130mm ex8's....

    2005 I think... Took me 8 years to notice it was mounted in 80mm!! Not so proud of myself...
