    Hypothetical question on a fork for a jet 9 r d o.

    I realize that niner only recommends 100 to 120 millimeter of fork travel on a r d o jet 9. But I was wondering if a guy would run that new Fox 34 Talas 110/140 if it would make a great bike even greater. Set it's on 110 for everything and big downhill desents on 140 every now and then. Like I said I realize warranties and all that stuff I was just wondering if anybody's done it and what they thought if it and if it actually works or is a waste of time and thought.

    I know a few people who "may" have done this and love it. I went 120 because of where I ride and because I have a Rip and a couple of AM/FR bikes for bigger stuff but if I only had one bike I think I would run the 140 and just keep in on 110 unless I was on tech stuff

    What is the max fork length Niner allows, they normally have quite large margins. The old 1st gen rip was OK with up to 135
    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?
