    That's a great looking bike oloug.

    Is 100mm the recommended sus fork length?

    Also, is it just me, or is the tubing fatter on the new KM?

    Not sure what the recommended length is but I rode this rigid with 27.5 x 3 tires and the 100mm with 29x2.5. completely transforms it. Head tubing is beefier I believe (1.5 taper) , not sure about top/bottom or chainstay.

    I've been riding my knolly chilcotin while waiting for the frame to arrive and this thing is just as fun, if not more fun on descents. Obviously the big stuff is easier with the knolly but the KM has perfect geometry. Was afraid what it would ride like with 100mm but I suggest everyone with a KM give it a whirl.

    Thanks Oloug.

    I just checked another website and the rigid KM fork is 100mm sagged suspension corrected. Looks like the BB is already pretty high with the rigid fork so I think 100mm forks may be the way to go.
