    2013 Fuel EX 8 long travel fork.

    Im thinking about swapping my 130mm DRCV fork on my Fuel EX 8 for a a 150mm rockshox pike dual position air. The DRCV never really clicked with me. The pike can be adjusted from 120mm to 150mm. So I can run it in the stock position if need be. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience running longer travel on a Fuel EX. I noticed the geometry of the bike is really close to the 2010 Remedy.

    I ran a 2008 fuel ex with a 150 u turn sektor. IMHO, 140 was the sweet spot.
