    NRS Carbon, Designed for what travel fork?

    So the NRS Carbon's were sold as compleate bikes with 80mm forks, but what is the geometry designed for? will they take 100mm forks?

    I couldn't find any info on the Giant website. Anyone have info directly from a Giant contact?

    yes, 80mm is stock. many people - myself included - have changed to 100mm forks for a plusher ride and there is no significant adverse effect on handling. sure, in theory it slackens the headtube angle, making for 'slower' steering, but i've not found this to be an issue. i ride recreationally, and don't race.

    i now have a REBA fork, and it's great.
