Happy to get shot down here, but is it meant to look like that? By that I mean the geometry looks a bit odd at the front; the rake / forks look too long.

I know that probably doesn't make any sense but it just doesn't look right :?

ok, you prob know but dont run them anymore than 80mm that does upset the geometry.

Personally I think the old kona frame with 80mm forks is one of the best rides you can get... Singletrack beware!

Hmm, with sus at 120 I could understand it looking wonky but not with a set of P2s :? It's almost like they are too long for the frame which I know sounds stupid.
