    120mm fork on a 1994 Cinder Cone?

    I recently broke my bike frame and would like to swap my components to a different frame. Money is tight, so I'm looking at used frames. I have a line on a 1994 Cinder Cone frame, but my current build includes a 120mm Fox Talas. If what I'm finding online is correct, the axle to crown height is around 490mm.

    Am I asking for trouble if I were to put this fork on this frame?

    1994 would have had like a 390mm fork. I think you need a newer frame.

    I've been using 130MM Z1 ETA since 2004 on my 1998 Kona Lavadome steel HT: aside from slightly slower steering my 220# weight has not snapped the frame yet.

    would like to get all ceramic bearing: hubs and BB.
