I am planning to upgrade the XC 32 Fork on my '12 Scott Scale Team and I was wondering what effect going to a 120mm Manitou Tower Pro would have. The axle to crown on the xc 32 is 515mm(measured) and the advertised axle to crown on the Tower pro is 530mm for the 120mm and 510 for the 100mm. I am new to mtb and the trails around here can get pretty steep, my first ride covered a 2400' elevation difference. I did actually go over my handlebars in a rock garden on a descent. Would I notice a big difference in handling, climbing or descent? Would the tradeoffs be worth it? This topic has been covered in other forums, but it sounds like Scott's geometry is a little different and most of the threads are discussing fs bikes.
