I'm thinking about getting an Orange 5 frame (2006 in the sales) but I can't afford new forks aswell so I'd want to run it with my Manitou Black Elites which have 100mm travel. Will these be a good match for the 5 with a 'Manitou swinger coil 3 way' shock, or does the frame require more travel up front?

deffo need longer travel forks. 140mm travel seems a good balance.
