    Lurcher: 80mm or 100mm fork

    I've been running a 100 mm fork for the past year on my Lurcher. Has anybody been running an 80mm fork? Just looking for your input on it. I am thinking about reducing the travel.

    I went the other way around.
    I had a FoxF29 80mm and removed the spacer to get 100mm...

    Pretty simple way to try it. Just lower the fork pressure until it sags 15mm or so more.
    Ride it and see it you like the feel.
    It's not exactly how a 80mm fork will feel....but close enough and free.
