    Fox Fork: How to determine amount of travel

    How do you determine how much travel your fork has. I just bought a Fox f29 and it was advertised as an 80mm but it came with a spacer, which to me indicates it is a 100mm, which I prefer. When I measured the exposed stanchion it came out to 3.5 inches approx, which is neither here nor there. What part should I be measuring to determine how much travel I have?

    Tie a thread or yarn around the exposed stanchion, slide it all the way down to the seal, compress the fork all the way down, and measure how much the thread traveled up. That will give you the approximate travel you're actually getting from the fork.

    My F29 is set for 100mm and has 4.5" of exposed stanchion.
