    Fork advice on new alum Razzo

    Just picked up one of these frames to build up and wondering how these work best set up with an 80 or 100mm fork. What have you guys found out works better?

    Thanks in advance.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    No one's running a suspension fork on these?

    100 mm for me

    I started with an 08' Reba at 80mm. Never had that ideal handling feeling at that setting. It mad a huge difference to me at 100mm. Not so much in bump absorption, but the handling worked for me much better. I was much happier with the bike after the change.

    Almost. I left it at the 80mm setting from the other bike it was on but it's still in shop waiting for some external bb bearing cups for my Hive crankset so I'll have them bump it back up to 100.

    Thanks for input Cemoto.

    I prefer mine at 100mm. I was worried it would change the geometry too much and make the front end really light on steep hills but I didn't really notice a change.

    Razzo felt much better with a 100mm fork.

    All built, fork still 80mm, still adjusting. The tensioner didn't get set up with quite enough clearence to spokes, so when I take back to shop I'm having them pull spacers and put it back to 100 mm travel.
