    Minitou tower pro on GT karakoram 3.0?

    I have a GT karakoram 3.0. I've been thinking about upgrading the fork. Could I put a manitou tower pro on it? I'm new to MTBiking and especially the fork stuff.

    Existing things to take into account : steer tube diameter, axle type, brake mount and amount of travel.

    The new fork will have to have the same steer tube diameter, axle type, brake mount & similar travel if you want to maintain the same geometry.

    Looks like you GT comes with a 100mm Suntour fork. The Tower should work just fine. You'll want 1 1/8" steer tube, 100mm travel and 9mm quick release axles.
    No moss...

    Are all those options available for the tower pro?
