I bought these 140mm Fox Float RLC forks from Merlin for my new Five build
I built the bike up (cut the steerer), took it for its first ride yesterday and all seemed good. Then I measured the exposed stanchion length this morning and its 150mm !
I'm not sure that I'm overly bothered as it felt just fine, but a couple of questions spring to mind.
Where do I stand with Merlin? I'm guessing that I couldn't send them back even if I wanted to as I've cut the steerer and ridden them, but I guess I should let them know that these forks appear to be 150 not 140.
Can the travel be reduced on these? As I say, I'm not sure I'd want to, but if its just a case of adding a spacer then I guess I could do that at the first oil change and see if I can tell the difference.
