Will it fit my XL Karate Monkey?
Found a Reba RL 100mm 29er fork local that is cut to 6.5". Question is will it fit on my Karate Monkey and/or how will it affect me.
Headset stack = 1.2"
head tube size = 4.1"
stem stack = 1.5"
So if my calculations are correct 6.5-4.1-1.2=1.2"
I will have no more rise (Stock fork is 10"). and my headset is going to be flush. Does this look about right to anyone else? How will this affect my overall riding?
What size XL KM do you have? HT length on the XL is listed at 125mm (4.92 inches). You must have one of the older versions that had a shorter HT.

Yeah its an older one 2008 - 10 skid mark brown. With 0 spacers and a 40mm stem it was about 1" too short! Agreed 7 3/4" seems about right. Lesson learned. I got the fork for a steal so i will just resell it.
Here's a pic for reference if anyone else happens to ask this question.
