Hi, I usually frequent the road bike side but I'm having a good look at bringing my first proper (and first big money spend on a bike) back to life.

It's a 1998 Mount Vision. Hopefully pic attached. I 'upgraded' the original fork, a Manitou SXr, twin piston chamber with a RC36 (?) Pace fork. I think the travel on both was probably 80mm or possibly 100mm.

Question is this: What would be the biggest travel fork it would the frame take? Could it possibly take a 130mm travel Marzocchi? or am I just asking for trouble?

Cheers,
