    Kona Explosif Owners - Who's running a 100mm fork?

    And if you are, how does it make the bike handle?

    Is anyone even stretching a bit and running a Talas 125 up front - Fox's are short forks axle to crown wise so I was wondering if this could be accomplished.

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I have a 2005 Explosif and run a 100mm fork. It rides fine, better than expected, in fact.
    You can run 125 if you want, but it will rake it out A LOT. It comes down to personal preferance, in the end.
