    Suspension / Geometry / Fork ?

    I have a DJ fork on my bike right now, its like 120mm of travel, its fairly tall from the top of the tire to the bottom of the fork crown. What I was wondering is if I were to put a slightly shorter fork on my bike would it affect the geometry of the bike alot or make it handle differently?

    Also, is the Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 3 a good budget fork for dirt jumping and drops?

    Shorter fork would make it feel more nimble and drop the front end. 1inch~1 degree head angle.

    For every 20mm of travel will change the headangle by 1 degree.... I think its something like that
