    '02 Fox Float 80 RL travel change (decrease from 100...)

    I purchased a used Fox Float 80 RL off eBay. The guy that owned it before me had changed the travel from 80 to 100mm.

    I've never had one of these forks, and never had one apart, obviously. How does one change the travel back to 80? I don't like how 100 affects the handling on the bike.

    Thanks for any help.

    All you have to do is put back in the spacer that the previous owner took out. I don't know if you can buy the spacer or not. Perhaps someone on this list has one they can send you. If you can get a hold of the manual it shows how to remove the spacer, so I imagine that you could figure out how to replace it. You used to be able to download the manuals from one of the FOX websites. From what I understand (I have never done it but I broke one once and the bikeshop replaced it for me) it is a plastic washer of some sorts so if you can't find one, you could probably mcguever (sp??) something that would work.

    Hope this helps,

    Fatter than most.
