Sorry guys....I have yet to start the thread about the refurbishment of my wicked new (old) zaskar i bought a couple of weeks ago!
a few personal set backs and lots of work for money etc. in the meantime i have popped into every bike shop i pass getting advice and browsing etc.
however i may have a problem i am sure you guys can hep with!?
i was told that old school geometry only allows for forks of an overall length of 320-400mm, most new forks have an overall length of 440, this extra length i am told will massively affect the steering and climbing characteristics of the frame and may result in the snapping of the steering tube on the frame!!!
is this true?
and what can i do about it?
are there any newer forks that will fit this frame?
i am in some confusion because the bike originally came with rock shox judy xc, with 60mm of travel?should this be what i aim for in terms of travel length?
