    Process 180 fork?

    So I'm getting a kona process frame and I have a fox talas 180 left from a prior bike. I wanna avoid spending the extra on a 160. Anyone know if a 180 is doable with a process...more importantly, is it still a fun ride?

    It seems like it should work. Maybe sending Kona an email would get a good answer.

    Where did you get the frame? I think this is going to be my next bike, but I wanted to get a frame only so I could build it the way I want, but I can't find it as a frame only option.

    Kona will tell you its going to void the warranty, running anything outside the travel range they use voids the warrantly.

    With that in mind, I would look into ways to shorten the travel of your current fork. That may included, but not necessarily be limited too, converting it to a Float instead of the current Talas. Since the float 180 travel can be shortened to anything you want that is under 180mm.

    Good luck

    I'm not really an @sshole, I just act like one online.

    Gonna be getting it as a warranty replacement...had a 2011 xxl coilair which has broken twice. Kona has been awesome about the warranty thing...first time got me a replacement coilair, but this time said no xxl coilairs left.

    Does the axle to crown distance shorten when a float is reduced from 180 to 160?
