    2015 Thunderbolt 770 with 100mm Fork

    Looking for advice if a Fox 32 SC 100mm Fork will work with a Carbon 2015 Thunderbolt?

    Wondering if anyone know how this will affect the geometry of the bike?

    Yes, that would be a problem, you'd steepen up the head angle by a degree and lower the BB by at least 10mm. If you adjust the Ride9 to slacken the head angle again, you'd have a total of 20mm bottom bracket drop. That is definite pedal strike territory.

    Thanks rockyuphill. This is what I wanted to know. Was looking to lighten the weight of the Thunderbolt a bit to stretch it out for another race season -- think I'll just prioritize getting an Element.
