    New question here. Fox fork on FSRxc

    I have just got a 08 fsrxc expert and its great, but i was thinking, would it be better if i change the SR recon to a Fox f100 or Talas. Dun know???

    And if i put a 5.5" fork, would that screw up the geometry that much?? or shoud I stay with 4"
    Or in your experience the recon its good enough.

    There is a thread of a guy that did it but he didnt mention nothing about the geometry!?

    keep the bike at 100mm any more you could damage the frame, the fox 100rl is a brilliant fork ive got one on my epic and its in another league compared to the recon that was on my xc, you could also go with a reba which ive only ever heard good things about, cheaper than the fox also

    IMO, the Fox F100 is an excellent fork, probably the best 100mm fork out there. Putting anything more than 100mm on that bike will screw with it. The FSRXC was designed around 4" of travel. It is not a 5" bike.
