    Fox 34 on a 429C?

    Hey everyone, is it possible to get a Fox 34 120mm Fork? If so, how would one go about getting one?

    Fox 34 on a 429C?

    When I contacted Fox a year ago I was told the first generation could be lowered only to 130. The second generation's minimum travel was 140. I don't know what the current generation's minimal travel is. I have a SuperMax on mine and it rocks. I have a Pike on my 27.5 and it is a fine fork and the 29er version can go as low as 120. The Trace can be adjusted to as low as 100 I believe and has received great reviews.

    Search Green Giant - he has excellent posts regarding large stanchion forks.

    Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. I'm just looking to get a little bit more stiffness out of my fork.

    I had a FOX 34 130 on my Mach 429 Carbon, I just ran my sag a little lower to keep the head tube lower so the bike wouldn't wander on climbs. I loved it. My rider weight is around 235, and the 34 is so much stiffer, I loved it!

    So as much as I'd really like to go with a larger stanchion fork (especially after my fox 32 went it for it's third creaky crown) I haven't yet.

    Best two options from a handling standpoint seem to be.

    1. Pike and have someone mill down the rod 10mm (the 120mm rod). With the 46mm offset it should handle just like a 120mm fox.

    2. X-Fusion Trace. Crown to axles are nice on the 120mm. 51mm offset might lighten up the steering. I keep thinking one day I'm going to try one.
