    New question here. Fox float 36 on a whippet

    I'm going 650b with my whippet, so I'm looking for a 100mm fox fork that will fit a 650b Nobby Nic. I found a 2012 Fox 36 Float RLC 160 that's been lowered to 100mm. It's a sweet fork that's not to expensive. I know that it's a freeride fork with a 20mm thru axel. My question is will it be too big, it seems like a pretty beefy fork. Also will it throw off the balance on the bike? It weighs almost twice as much as my current magura fork.

    I don't see any reason why you couldn't use it. But the question is why would you want to use that boat anchor of a fork on a XC bike? Why not look for a Fox 32?
