    120 fork on a 1x1?

    I just came into a 120 reba, how adversely would this change a 1x1's handling? Would it be nothing to worry about?

    IŽve got an 1x1 from a couple of years back when they were recommended 80 mm of travel if you went with a suspension fork. I currently ride it, and have been for a couple of months, with a 100 mm fork and it works but not perfect and iŽm switching back to the stiff fork as soon as i get around to it. IŽd say if you got the older model that i got it will work with either 80 or 100 mm travel but i wouldnŽt even try 120 mm. If you got the newer 1x1 that is said to work best with 100 mm forks iŽd say go for 120 and see what happens.

    I've got the 2012 1x1 frame with a 100mm fork, and it seems a little raked out compared to riding with the rigid fork...I would not suggest going 120, but that's just me. It depends on what you want and what you ride, though.

    You can reduce the travel on that 120mm Reba with spacers. So you can start at 120mm and keep dropping until the handling is decent.

    I suspect a 1x1 with a 120mm fork would handle like a chopper. I ran mine rigid and with a 80mm fork.
    Safe riding,

    I have the 2014 1x1 and for a while had a FOX TALUS 80-120mm fork on it. I ran it 100 most of the time, but for chunky stuff 120 was awesome. Steering wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. Handled like an all mountain bike.
