    Long Travel Fork?

    I have a 2001 Kona Muni Mula and I was wondering if I could put a 140 RST Launch fork on it.

    Sure, it will fit. Other than the fact it will slacken your head tube angle by over 3 degrees, raise you bottom bracket significantly and wreck the handling, you're good to go It's usually not a good idea to put a 140mm fork on a bike that was designed around an 80mm fork.

    It would not be adviseable as the geometry would be pretty wierd.... Plus the fact that putting a longer fork adds more leverage on your headtube and might ovalize it, or worse, snap the headtube off....
