    Parkers - What Travel Fork Are You Using?

    I know many are probably using a RS U-Turn fork, but for those riders and others, I'd like to know what travel fork you typically run, and if you've experimented with different ones, which do you prefer? I'm debating moving from 100mm to a 120mm fork. I don't often do any major jumps/drops - but the trails I ride have several rocks, smaller drops. If I had to say what "type of riding" - I'd say aggressive XC. I do weight in at 255 - so I'm a heavier rider. Just don't know if 20mm is going to feel all that different.

    any thoughts?????

    I rode with my 85-130 at every setting each ride. (one ride at 85, then one at 100, so on)
    and I find that 130 feels the best for "most" things. I love the U-turn forks for that fact.

    mine is at 100

    I have a RS recon 351 (85mm-130mm) and i've had mine at 100mm since I had it installed.

    i was going 120mm but the bike seems so much happier at 130mm. slacks it out a touch and it just eats up obstacles. still can rail corners too. i ride aggressive xc too.
