    Yeti 575 frame build question

    Hi, I am currently building my first 575, and have a quick questions. My frame is a Yeti 575 2008/2009 model in an xl. I am just wondering what the ride would be like with a 180mm fox fork up front vs having something in the 140mm range? Is the difference going to change the angles more than it should comfortably? Any info is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I have an '08 with 140mm up front, it handles great. I think a 180 would make it ride like a dog, especially up hill!
    I'd personally stick with Yeti's recommendations.

    Enjoy the build!

    The a/c length would determine but I think Yeti recommends 160mm max. You should check with tech dept on their site.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....
