    08 Reign 0 fork?

    Hi there,

    I just wonder if I can install 08 Marzocchi ATA 66 on Reign 0? Maybe it's too long? or it might just work fine?

    way to big , it already has a very long headtube , would completely mess up the geo and would be a b**ch to climb with. 160mm is the sweetspot

    OK, I see. What if I just set it at 160mm instead of 180mm would that be better?

    I guess that would defeat the purpose , all your doing is adding a bunch of weight for no reason , put a 36 float , talas or lyrik on there. Stiff and light

    Another issue with the taller fork is I made the switch to the 08 reign and while the reign really excells with a taller fork. I changed from a 05 to the 08. The weight savings alone was significant. But I did lose a significant amount of standover. So that may be a big concern if you ride extremely technical terrain. I am talking well over an inch of standover lost with the same fork. Just my 2 cents. That is my only beef with the otherwise outstanding bike.
