    Camber comp carbon, delivered with 120mm fork?

    Hi, I recently bought a Camper Comp Carbon 2015 model. I was planning to shift the fork to a 120 mm Revelation. When I measured the stanchion of the Fox fork thatīs on the bike itīs 120 mm. It should be 110 mm. What am I missing?

    A lot of times Fox forks show more stanchion than the travel they have. A few years back the Stumpy came with a 140mm Fox 32, and people would measure the stanchions and come up with 150mm, but when you bottomed it out riding you could never use that last 10mm. I was told Fox designed it that way to prevent the crown from banging into the lowers.

    Thanks for the answers, I also think it just have 110 mm travel. I have tried to bottom it out when riding but never use the last 10 mm. A revelation should be a good switch then, same AC height and 10 mm more travel.
