Would this be a good idea?

For example I think I may be getting a new (to me) frame that runs best on 80mm forks. The ones I have spare are 120mm.

Surely there must be someone out there with the opposite issue to resolve. So instead of trawling through for sale threads looking for new ones and then selling your own ones just check the sticky out?

Just a thought.

Swopping migfht sound a good idea but there are possible problems over the working condition of 2 identical forks IE 2 foxes one 80mm the other 130mm chances are one will be in worse condition than the other :?

Invest in a fork that can adjust from 80-130mm
Problem solved :wink:
