Beginner thinking about changing the fork on the (29er) KM. At present, KM has only been used for street and groomed trail riding. Wanting to try my hand at learning to ride "real" off-road trails.
Issues are as follows:
(1) Current wheels (Sun Rhyno-Lite rims with Deore hubs) would require front shock of QR design. Is that okay, or better to change wheels and go with "thru axle" design? Does the bulk of a QR shock being in front of the axle affect geometry and/or handling?
(2) Thinking that Reba RLT might be a good way to go. LBS likes the fork, too. Yea or nay?
(3) Anything else I should be asking?
