    On-One Inbred: Best suspension fork length

    I'm considering an Inbred but need to know the best suspension fork travel. Somebody told be the frame is designed around a 100mm fork. I've got a 80mm fork that's perfectly good.

    The question is will a large Inbred ride well with the 80mm or will I have to buy a new fork?

    FWIW I ride mostly hilly routes - long mashes up followed by long rollers back down.
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    I tried mine with both...

    100 and 80mm (Fox Float) and found that I liked the 80mm much better. I thought the 100mm was just a bit too long and slowed things down to the point that I didn't like. I'd say put your 80mm on there and ride it.

    Later...

    We say "up to" 100mm. Or 105mm if you run marzocchis. which are quite long.

    I too ran 100m on on mine for a long while. Then I tried it at 80mm and liked it a lot more.
