    Junior T. on KHS fr1500?

    Hi everyone
    I have a khs fr1500/2000 frame, and i'm thinking of replacing the standard fox 125r that came with my bike with a marzo Jr. T.
    The problem is, i don't know if my frame is up to the job. Is it strong enough?
    I've sendt several e-mails to various people, but no one can tell me what the recommended fork size for the fr1500/2000 is.
    So, everybody. Whats your opinion? Is the fr1500 up to the job?

    too much fork. That frame is designed around a 130mm fork. They sell both the FR1500 and 2000 with:
    Fox 125
    Sherman 130
    Drop off 2

    I wouldn't go more than 140-150 dual crown. It;s a strong frame though, but might be compromised with too much fork. I would personally put a sherman flick 150mm on there or a stance 150. The frame does have a really thick gusset at the head tube, but might not take too big of a fork if you plan on going to drops over 8ft. I'm guessing that's exactly what you were thinking too, for bigger hucks. Watch out for super slow steering with a 170+mm fork, that frame already has a huge wheel base with a 130mm fork. I have first hand experience with the FR1500 w/ 130 mm drop off 2 fork, so I'm not pulling this out of my ass.
