    need help real quick

    I'm looking at an 05 enduro fsr frame that per specialized specs it comes with a 130mm fork. My ? Is, I'm using my current bike to swap all the components and my bike has a fox 80rl fork that can be extended to 100mm, would that 30mm affects or would I notice that 30mm difference, is there any problems?
    My fork is like new conditions and don't want to spend money on another fork.

    Please let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks in advance.

    Btw, I noticed that on the specialized web site, the older models apparently came with 80 or 100mm forks if I remember correctly, so I don't know why the difference.

    The older models actually came with a Fox Float RL TALAS, 80-125mm externally adjustable travel, linear air spring, rebound adjust, compression lockout, alloy steerer

    05 shows a 130mm fork.

    Could I have any compatibility issues with the rear shock?? Don't really know.

    100mm fork in going to steepen the head angle and lower the bottom bracket. You can get away with it for a bit, but ideally you wil want to pickup a 130/140 fork to get the most out of the bike.
