I know that there has been much discussion on the forums in general about the use of 80mm vs 100mm forks. And trust me I have spent about 2 hours a night for the past 3 weeks searching for any info for this my first build.
But I hope someone on here can address the question with this specific frame. I have an 05 Jamis Dragon frame and from what I have found they came with an 80mm fork. However I'm not having the best of luck in finding a fork in my price range with 80mm of travel. I am coming across a few good deals on old stock Manitou R7s but they are all in 100mm. Does anyone have experience with a 100mm fork on an 05 frame?
The bike will be both my first build and my first bike to race(hopefully). While I'm sure 80mm would be the best for race I will also be riding this bike for training and any other ride here in Ohio- so the terrain is not too terrible.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
