    Anyone ever upgrade their front fork on a 2018 Tallyboy 3c? If so what did you go with?

    Hi Sandog1,

    There is no such thing as giving too much background info, e.g.:

    What fork does it have now?
    Why are you thinking of upgrading?
    What problem are you trying to solve?
    What's your budget?

    I have the Fox 34, and was think about throwing a 36 on there for more travel. Is this a bad Idea, and would it hinder performance?

    Normal for the TB is 120mm. The 34 will go to 140mm with a new air shaft. How much travel are you planning? The 36 is heavier and stiffer, which could be good if you're heavier. Go too long and if SC gets wind of it, it may affect warranty.

    It will change performance, whether it's beneficial or a hindrance depends on how/where you intend to ride it.
    Do the math.
