    Full suspension 29er bike - Looking to upgrade fork

    I have a fuji outland 29er full suspension bike.
    The stock fork is a 100mm Rockshox XC32/TK.
    My question is how much longer travel can I go in the front?
    I am looking to stay with a rockshox fork/15mm axle.
    Can I go 120 or 130mm front with 100mm rear?
    Good deals on Sektor and revelation.
    What would a G2 geometry fork do? (51mm offset)
    Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.

    More offset = quicker steering.

    Stick with stock travel. More travel will slacken the headtube, raise the bb and probably make the bike feel not great. If you've never done that on a bike, you can try it but the front end gets all floppy.
