    2017 Jeffsy 27 with a Fox 34
    The top-end 2017 Jeffsy 27 has 160mm of travel as opposed to 150mm like the other models. But the fork is a Fox 34 w/ 160mm. I've only ridden Pikes in the last several years, and I'm wondering whether the Fox 34 (as opposed to a Pike or 36) might be a bit noodley for a bike with 160mm of travel. Any thoughts?

    I wouldn't worry about that. Yes it will be more flexible than say a 36 but putting that on a Jeffsy is too much when the intended purpose for her is trail riding.

    guys are doing it, but probably not necessary. i bumped my 29 to 150mm up front for 40 bucks and put an X2 on the back because i like the adjustability of that shock. if you're a big guy then maybe i could see the argument for it but the 34 is actually a really capable fork.

    The Pike is 35mm stanctions. The Fox 34 should be pretty good especially if you can customize the spring rate by bottomless tokens. I have found the Pike is sprung a little too stiff for me, but I am only 135lbs.
