    SB-95 w/ modded Fox 36 fork ... geo ?

    I have a modded Fox 36 which I'd like to use for a SB-95 build.
    It's actually ~ 150mm of travel sagged (160mm static)

    I realize that a 140mm fork is s'pose to be the max for the SB-95.

    I plugged the numbers into a geo calculator. The green box on the left shows a medium SB-95 w/ a 140mm fork. The pink box on the right shows the geometry changes if you use a 160mm fork.

    Too slack for climbing? BB too high? etc...

    Guess I could always get an angleset and make it steeper if too much a chopper.

    So has anyone put a fork longer than 140mm on their SB-95?

    thanks!

    EDIT - The modded fork is actually closer to 150mm:

    I have my 95 at 145 ( should have been 150 but I shorted myself ) I will alter it to 150...next time in .

    I really like the bike slacker and more importantly the BB and handle bar height , the bike is really starting to fit me correctly.

    It climbs just the same ( now Im long and tall so I really don't have problem climbing )

    I know Colin has his 95 at 150 and loves it also.

    Those numbers you have for a 160mm fork are just exactly what my Enduro was to a tee and I really liked that geo on a bike , I could ride that thing anywhere ( except it was a 26er so rodie riding was really really a nard thing to do ) .

    Im sure I will run my bike at 160 soon
