    Manitou Mattoc 29+ travel spacer question...

    Has anyone taken out 1 more spacer then they should have to gain another 10mm travel on a 29+ Mattoc Comp. The fork supposedly came on my bike in it's 110mm travel option. I took the fork apart after purchasing a tool kit from Manitou so that I could increase the travel to 120mm. The manual from Manitou states 2 spacers for 120mm travel on a 29+ fork. I expected to find three spacers, since that would indicate to me via the technical information that the fork was set at 110mm but I only found 2 spacers. I removed another spacer, which I am sure is not recommended and gained another 10mm travel. I am curious if anyone else has done this/ridden their bike and what the results were...

    Mattoc 29+" aftermarket forks could go to 120mm. OEM will depend on whether they ran the same stanchions and rod length.

    Thanks for the reply Dougal. I was told that I could increase the travel of the fork to 120mm from the bike manufacturer. There were 2 spacers in there. I took one out and increased the travel by 10mm. Do you know anyone who has done this? I realize that it is most likely not recommended but I am curious? Fork is measuring 130mm travel...

    So if anyone else is considering this in the future...Not advisable. Bushing play.
