Are these suitable for a 99 Explosif frame? Axle to crown is apparently close to 460 which seems long?

I think nearly all the rc36's are switchable between 70mm and 90mm travel.
Therefore any RC36 on 70mm should be fine.

Note you have to take them apart to switch.

I'm sure someone who knows more than me will be along to explain more.

Thanks guys...I just managed to bag a very clean set...just need a new longer steerer to finish.
I used to ride/race on them on the exact same frame I am building now...so no worries about seals...they just need care and then they are simply superb!; )
