Got 420mm rigids on my RC300 at the mo, and I'm going to get myself some suspension but what travel can I go up to without ruining the geometry?
Any fork recommendations????
Cheers in advance
Tommy

I believe they were designed for 80mm forks.

That said, the RC36 that they regularly came with was either a 76mm or 90mm fork.

I'd personally stick an RC36 on it, or a later RC39/ 40/41 (can;t remember which was the 80mm one - probably the RC39).

Ask the Pace boys, Jerky JustBackDated, Neil, Pace, the others.....they'll know.
