    Anyone, Joe Kona, help with new fork

    I have a 2004 Dawg Dee Lux with a 100 mm Fox float and I am considering a new fork so I can use the old one on my hardtail.

    I would like to know what I can expect if I use a 130 mm Fox, especially since the rear will remain four inches (can't upgrade without replacement of rear triangle).

    Is it a problem to have more travel up front than in the rear?

    Oh, I dont' want to use aftermarket linkage plates for the rear.

    thanks
