    Zion 737 with 100mm fork?

    Anyone try running a Zion 737 with a longer 100mm fork?

    Thinking of trying this setup with a fork with a longer offset like on the RST M29 or the new Fox F29?

    No responses so I did it anyways. Btw RST M29 works fine, no clearance issues. Just one ride but so far it works great.

    Pho'dUp are you still liking that fork? I have a white 737 frame on the way. It will match.

    It's not bad. Only a few rides on it. It is heavy though for a XC fork. At least 1/2 lb. or more heavier than a Reba. But it clears the Zion downtube fine without putting a + 5mm or +7mm race on there.

    Thanks Pho'dUp. This is going to be my first build, so it will probably take quite a while. I'm going to try it rigid first ( couldn't say no to a $29 fork ), but afraid my old body won't like it, so will probably go with a suspension fork sooner or later.

    By the way---nice bike.

    Thanks Noobi-Wan,

    I tried Rigid and it wasn't for me. I'll try it again though. There is something very sweet about the rigid's simplicity and weight savings. But I suggest putting the biggest tire you can fit in that fork to take some of the bite out.
