    Tanuki Supreme upgrades, 150mm fork?

    Hi Kona lovers, I'm looking for some perspectives on further upgrades to my 2012 Tanuki Supreme. It's served me well for 2 seasons now and I've made a few upgrades already (noted in red below.)
    My objectives are:

    Reduce weight - currently 28lbs 6oz, where could I get the most bang for my buck?

    Upgrade the fork - would a 150 throw off the geometry too much?

    Thanks for any input!

    Nice build up. I think 150mm would work OK...should slacken it out about a degree.

    I have a 2008 Dawg and I ran my Revelation @ 150mm for awhile, but there was just a little too much flex in that chassis...so I lowered it to 140mm.
