    P-29 100mm or 120mm?

    I bought a frame in November and have been struggling with which fork length to get before I assemble the new ride. I will be riding in the PNW mostly planning to do XC trails.

    Should I look for 100mm or 120mm fork? In terms of comfort and handling. I am aware of the trade off.

    Is there a risk to the frame with a longer fork?

    Bonus question, can you run 2.4" tires on this frame? The Ritchey site says 2.25 max but i have seen builds running 2.4. Thoughts?

    The frame is built for a 100. How is it working out for you? I was thinking of selling my Niner RDO and swapping everything over to a P29.

    My buddy is running 27.5+ on his p29er with a 2.8 rekon out front, and a 2.8 icon out back... I dunno how useful that is for you, but it makes me think a 2.4 would fit fine!

    I'm in a similar situation on my el mariachi with my fork. I want to bump it to 120mm... but I think 100mm is perfect for the geo, and bumping it to 120 is just me wanting a bike for gnarlier times. I think i'll leave it at 100 and ride the crap out of it, then get a bigger bike to compliment it when I'm ready to do so.
