    120mm fork on Epic

    Okay, my turn to ask this! Anyone running a longer fork on their Epic? I like the thought of having a bit more travel up front but wondered about any concerns on this geometry, since Specialized states not to exceed the 100mm...ever. Thanks!

    My riding buddy runs a RS Revelation 426 coil u-turn 85-130 on his 05 Epic without a drama, he's ridden it at 85mm to 130mm and eventually settled on 120mm for most riding situations except very long drawn out climbs where he generally drops the fork to 90mm.
    I've ridden it at 130mm and it steered much like my stumpy which has a slacker head angle than the epic, felt great downhill like that.
    Remember, faster is better but out of control isn't the same as fast.
