Was just wondering. I know about a to c for sus corrected rigid forks. However does it change drastically between manufacturers for sus fork?.

ie would a set of Fox 100mm travel sus forks be different to a set of say 100mm marz marathones or a 100mm set of sid's?

Actual a to c doesnt seem to get much of a mention in specs for forks.

I'm going to be looking at getting some xc fixed travel for my next build and have a set of 80-125 rev on my cotic so will be able to work out the ruff a to c that i want for the new ones.

Im not sure about those forks specifically but yes it can vary and sometimes greatly. All the info on the well know brands are out there and well documented for you to check though.

I believe there can be some differences such as Marzocchi have made in the past a 80mm travel fork with an a to c the same as a similar 100mm travel forks. It all depends i suppose on whate kind of bike the forks aimed at as there are so many sub genre of mtb and thus many sub genre of fork. Best keep a tape measure handy :wink:

useful

yeah brands seem to vary, I had some 130mm MZ Drop Offs which had a huge a-c - more like a 150mm fork... and my new Reba at 85mm have a shorter a-c than my old 80mm Duke
