    We the people ... ASR 5A Fork Choice

    I am waffling on what fork length I should put on my ASR5. I am mostly debating between 120mm and 130mm, but I am curious what do the majority of ASR riders here run?

    If you feel the need to explain, by all means delve into your riding habits and terrain.

    Go 140! I have ridden my ASR5C with both 120 and 140 and at 140 the bike handles so much nicer on the downhill and flowy single track. I did not notice much loss of efficiency while climbing, maybe the front wanders a little bit more, but not too noticeable.

    FYI, I live in Southern California, usually ride long fireroad climbs to fun techy singletrack downs. This bike gets me up the hills FAST and just rips going downhill.

    How many people have their ASR5 with a 150 mm fork?

    I am quite surprised that there are only 140's ringing in on this poll. That must say something...
