'ello everyone - i'm currently building up a super slack super gnarcore hardtail designed to run 160mm, now i wanted to ask other people with similar set ups, do you have (and if so, do you use) travel adjust forks?
On the one hand they seem like a perfect mix, run it at 160mm for full on descents/days out but for xc duties or long ascents wind it down! On the other hand is it necessary? Surely a bike built solid is best used for hardcore days and an xc bike kept for gentler ones. Although, i'd rather the one bike tbf - maintenance/use/ethos (at the mo i'm running a xc 100mm hardtail everywhere. it gets seriously sketchy and my ridings progressing)
the final component would be does fork choice ability<travel adjust.. eg. (see other thread) Bos deville's impressive damping+huge service intervals vs Pike's good damping BUT travel adjust
Thank you fellow singletrackers!! This is my dream build, and i havent the money to a. get it wrong, b. get one and see if it works.. then try switch it if dosnt
