    How to raise BB height on '03 Enduro?

    I'm constantly tagging rocks and roots with my pedals; The only thought I have so far is a longer travel fork (130mm) to replace the standard 105 MX Comp, which is adequate but so entry level it begs replacement anyhow.

    I ride the Norshore/Vancouver and similar ,the trails aren't your usual singletrack, otherwise I'd be OK. I can't flip the rear link as then the head tube angle is too XC for the steeps I ride.

    All thoughts welcome.

    TIA, Jim

    Okay, get the longer fork....

    DEFINATELY...that helps, and then flip the link. You'll find that with the longer fork and the link flipped you'll have better clearance and the handling will stay about the same as with the Zocch. Had an 03 Enduro and did exactly that and it worked out quite well.

    Had an '03? Begs the quesiton what you replaced the Enduro with. Actually I agonized over this already and concluded the fix was all I can afford right now, and I have a big bike for FR and other silly endeavors.

    Curious as to what you got, I bet a 5 Spot or similar?

    Take care, Jim

    Also, have you checked out the 06 Norco Fluid series?

    If you haven't already seen it, check out LeeL's post about his on Passion.

    I wouldn't hesitate slapping a little bit taller fork on there for the terrain you ride.

    the slacker head angle combined with a smidgen more b.b. clearance should be a great advantage to you.

    It will hurt on the climbs some, so if you could grab a fork with ETA (zocchi) maybe a z.1 or AM series or even UTurn (sram/rockshox) pike/reba series, just some sort of travel control/climbing feature it should climb and descend better, best of both worlds.

    I vote keep the enduro.

    I used to constantly tag stuff with my pedals on my 03 Enduro Expert. Problem was solved by swapping the OEM Psylo and OEM ITCH Float RL Fox for an 05 FOX Talas RLC 130 and 05 Fox RP3 (7.875). Set the fork to 127mm and the linkage to the highest BB position. Works great on single track forest trails.
