Here is an example of the effects of installing a 66 mm travel fork onto a bicycle that is not suspension corrected. You can clearly see in this picture that the increased HT angle has caused the sole of bigmech's shoe to structurally fail! hee hee hee This is a pic from Bigmech's first MTB race. Wolfman also raced his first race on the karocram and still pedals this bike from time to time with an 80 mm fork on the the front ya got her all choppered out. wolfman you should bring her back to her roots and put a rigid fork on the front end. Damn bigmech looks fast in this pic and look at the smile mountain bike racing has put on his face here!
