Hey, I'm looking in to buying an Orange crush bike. My question is its running 180mm rock shox totems on it, its a 16" frame, will in handle and be ok? Cheers Rob 8)

I reckon the handling will be a bit dodgy...are these not designed for a maximum of 150mm or so?

I had a Sub Zero with 150mm forks on the front and that was Ok. A bit wandery on the climbs, but goo fun on the way down. I think that was one of the best hardtails that I've ever had.

Was this an option instead of the bike you PM'd me about?

I wouldn't run 180mm forks on a Crush and would probably not buy one that had been used with forks that long tbh.
