    FOX Vanilla RLC 130

    I have an '06 Jamis Dakota Comp and I recently upgraded from a Manitou fork 100m to a Fox Vanilla RLC 130mm. I mostly ride cross country and all mountain. Will my climbing ability change with the added 30mm of travel??

    Take it for a ride and tell us, your opinion is the only one that matters in this case. All we can do is speculate and guess. While the fork travel has increased 30mm, Fox forks have a relatively short a2c, so the difference between this and your old fork may not be as much.

    Manitou forks have a relatively short a2c too, very close to the Fox height for the same travel.
