    Is the front fork of the Anthem Advanced SX 2015 adjustable?

    I am getting mixed information about this. I am told the fork that is used is used is adjustable up to 140 with a new air spring.

    The shop told me that's not the case. But I've read on a few places online that it is?

    Can anyone clarify?

    Edit:

    Called SRAM, the answer is apparently yes. I may go up to 130mm if it's a cheap/easy fix.

    So it looks like it will cost me $100.

    Currently it's 120 travel on the front, would I notice any difference going to 130? This wouldn't be an issue for the frame?

    Not much of a change in travel (10mm = .39 inches). You mention cheap/easy 'fix'...are you fixing a problem or just looking to increase travel? Not thinking 10mm will make a big difference...maybe the compression and rebound circuits will feel different due to the change in internals? As for frame...check with mfg on warranty impacts.

    Years ago I 'over forked' a Trek Fuel 98 and rode it for a couple of years that way (I think I went 120mm to 140mm). It was a used frame so no warranty. I'm sure your Anthem will ride fine with only 10mm increase in front...may require a more forward body position adjustment to adjust CG for climbing.

    Well looking to increase travel really. The xc trails around here are pretty technical, lots of rocks and roots that I find my angle is a bit to steep at times and hard to put my weight back and I feel like I'm going to get bucked over the bars when the trail gets steeper and gnarly. Pedal strikes are also a pain.

    One thing to watch out for is the seat tube angle, it's already slack on that bike since it's meant for a 100mm fork. Something to consider if you also do a lot of steep technical climbing.
