Hi,

I bought a 95-98 era suspension corrected steel frame. Ready for Judy XC etc. I do have suspension forks of the era, but I am going through the options I have. In case I go rigid, do I need a somewhat longer fork?

Happy weekend :D

Re:

Forks and geometries underwent a couple of pretty big changes during the year range you cite. In '95, 64mm travel was still at the high end and, by '98, 80mm travel was more common than not. So you may need a bit longer than 410. Best to mock up a build and measure the frame angles. Its often easier to find that info in old specs than what length fork was intended.

Okay. I do read the frame was also available as complete bike with Judy XC: 426mm long, 63mm travel. So I will probably fit a RondWP I have laying around or I source a 410mm rigid fork.
