    One 9'ers. Fork travel?

    Just curious where you've got your fork set? 80? 100? Somewhere in between? I'm at 80, but I'm thinking of converting to 100mm. I do a fair amount of chunky stuff, so I think the extra travel would be welcome. But I don't want to give up too much handling.

    I've got a 100mm Roxshox XX on my One9. I really like it...It's a nicer riding and faster feeling bike than my geared Superfuly with 80mm. I don't think you'll be losing anything.

    Reba XX here, got it at 80mm right now. Might switch to 100mm next time I service the fork. Not much chunk in North Texas, just a lot of roots.

    FOX RLC 120, under sagged for max cushion!

    I run about 25% sag, and use pretty high volume tires (GEAX GATO 2.3 TNT on 23mm wide rims tubeless) at 23-25 PSI for alot of cushion. All of these small details add up to good cushion on rocky steep declines. We pass alot of downhill guys all padded up on full squish bikes. I am no pro, super fast guy, but pretty fast. I like the feel of 120mm fork after buying/selling 80mm and 100mm.
