So I bought this Boulder SE off this old man for $170 locally. He bought it new and put some miles on it and didn't store it well. By the time I bought it there was a serious need for an overhaul or replacement of just about every bearing and cable, replaced a bad RD and replaced the back wheel instead of trying to mess with it; but it's true, it works, and it's there as backup though I need to get it overhauled.
Anyways, this XCMv2 fork was always worth its weight in scrap and am looking for a new fork. I'm wondering what the max suspension fork travel the 2009 Boulder SE can handle before it becomes destructive to the headtube? I know that the longer the travel the more it will shift the geometry.
I'm not going to ride the longer travel fork very hard, or often, while on the Boulder SE as the fork will be moving to a 20" **** hardtail with a 67degree HT-Angle that can take 120mm to 150mm of travel, and winter is coming so not much riding will be had. After I move the fork to he new frame in early spring, I'll get a 120mm travel fork for the Boulder,
All help is greatly appreciated, thanks for reading!
