hi peeps
normally when i going to build a bike i more or less know how its going to go but i,ve 2 sussers to build and im stuck.
1st 2002 orange sub 5 80/100 travel front 5" at the back
2nd 2006 marin rift zone 100mm front and back
my problem is i only have 2 spares sets of forks 80mm sid carbon world cups and a set of pace rc39 c type 100mm.
do i fit the pace to the sub 5 to match the rear better and fit the sids to the marin?
cheers si

Marin should get 120's i reckon. 100's on the orange but definitely not 80's on the marin.
