Dunno, I know mine was built around an 80mm travel Fork. I tried that with a set of F100's with the reducer in there. But IMO it rides better at 100mm. Spose its personal preferance, intended use, and all that....

I found engines are much easier to set-up and don't weigh as much :thumbsup:

Ignore the chaint tension, half link will be fitted later. Maybe a front brake too, feels really dodgy just using the pedal brake on big hills.
