    What fork is the FR designed for?

    There seems scant info on this. I have a friend who is looking at an FR we think from 2007/8. It currently has Marzocchi bomber z1 freerides on it. I think these are 150 but long a2c.

    He has 150mm DTSwiss 15mm xmc forks and ideally would like to use them.

    So is the FR designed for 150, 160 or around a specific a2c any help appreciated.
    Aka chainline...

    It's a 2007 he's looking at phil. 2008 is a slightly different animal. The 2007 was before my time with nicolai.

    should be 150-160 for 2007. It was a little like the first generation of the AM. Had a lighter tubeset than the later versions.

    The later FR 2008-2010 was for 160-180 forks and more gravity oriented.
