Hey folks, quick question. A few of my mates are planning a trip to Morzine this summer and I'm really keen to join them.
The trouble is they all have DH rigs, where as I am currently kitted out with a Lapierre Zesty 414 with Fox Float 32 140mm forks, AM bike. I get the impression from my mates who were there last year, that this is under-specced for the trails off the uplifts.
Having ridden the Fort William DH track a few times, I do feel like yes I could benefit from some beefier forks to tune my ride to this type of riding. Therefore I was considering some second-hand Rock Shox Lyriks or Fox Float/Talas 34 160mm as a potential upgrade.
Question is to anyone with experience of the trails, will that be enough? My mates suggest at least DH forks but I'm not even convinced my bike would take a 200mm dual-crown.
