    Is a 80mm Jet Alloy with 120mm fork too out of balance?

    Seeing great prices on these frames. Are they 2012 or 2013? Anyway, I'm wondering is putting a 120mm fork on an 80mm travel rear will make it ride strange. Thoughts?

    Yes, that will be a pretty out of balance combination with 80mm in the rear. 100mm works fine though.
    The 14 warmest years have all occurred in the 16 years since 1997.
