What travel forks can be run on a RC305 - it looks like 130mm is recommended from what I have read but has anyone run 140mm? Is it possible or would it ruin the ride/handling?

Cheers

The frame is designed for a 130mm fork and to run at the same ride hight as a 100mm one would. The extra 10mm with the sag set would be fine. Probably only 1/2 a degree difference in head angle in the end.

When I was speccing my 303, the guys at Pace really made big thing about using the right length fork on it.

You can take it or leave ádvice, but I took it.....

But I suppose 1cm is neither here nor there really.

Just spoke to Pace direct they reckon no lower than 130mm and no higher than 150mm - reckon 140mm would be ideal then.
