    Is this 140mm fork going to be ok on my On-One?

    I just got my new Fox Vanilla R, and was thinking about trying it on the Inbred just for kicks before I put it on my Enduro FS.

    What do you think? Is a fork this long going to cause too much wheel flop or too much strain on the head tube? Anything else I should worry about, or should I go for it?

    Thanks,

    Guess no-one knew. As you can see, it's on.

    Minimal flop (feels pretty close to the Enduro), so we'll see how it works on a real ride, not just in the back 40.

    Damn, this is one plush fork, folks- and that's out of the box. if it's anything like my last one, it just keeps getting better with time.

    Personally I would not do it but if I did I would also lower the stem (and go longer) and move the saddle forward.

    Read about what Brant did with the Inbred geometry to create the 456 long travel hardtail

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    The stem was actually too low (and too much of a reach) before, so this will help, I think. I had too much weight on my hands and needed to sit up a little more. I may try moving the saddle forward, tho.

    Thanks for that link!
