    Trek G2 Fox fork on a Niner?

    I've got a buddy looking to build up a WFO (he's 6'4", 270) and he's trying to use as many parts from his 2010 Trek Paragon to keep money in his wallet. Is there any reason that fork wouldn't work, other than being a little lean on the travel? It's at 130mm right now.

    I'm using a G2 from my Titus full suspension 29r on a hardtail Niner A9 build. G2 is a good geometry. It'll work great.

    If it was on a paragon, why(tf) is it set at 130mm of travel?

    He had it serviced and taken out. Aggressive, heavy rider.

    I had G2 on my older version Sir 9 ss and it worked fine, but was a weird feeling for 5 minutes whenever I rode my other bike. It never bothered me at 80mm, and I THINK it would make less difference on longer travel fork.
