    what fork on our AC

    hey just wanted to ask what forks everyone is running on their ACs. i was thinking about getting an AC fram eand building it but not sure what type of fork to get. i was thinking something with about the same travel. also does anyone know if you can switch the racker plate things on an AC and get the 4,5,6" adjustability instead of just 5,6"

    Fork - I started out on a 2002 AC Air Lite with a Psylo. It kept on leaking and was not stiff enough for the technical XC riding I like to do. I upgraded to a 2003 Manitou Sherman Firefly with a 20mm QR up front. What a difference! It's amazingly stiff and plush.

    Rocker plates - depends on the year. I broke the '02 frame and got a warrantied 2003 AC-1 frame with a Swinger Four Way! Up to and including 2002's - they were adjustable from 4.5 to 5.15 to 6 inches. 2003 - 2004 are 5.5 and 6.5 (claimed 5.3 and 6.5, but the plate shows 5.3 and 6.3) I've never ridden with the thing in anything but the long travel setting, and I do plenty of XC riding.
