    Instead of buying a whole new bike, how about you talk to Loco/TFT about altering your current suspension?

    I’m thinking of selling my spesh fsr xc pro in order to buy a pitch as I fancy some extra travel. Thing is, on my current frame has anyone run greater travel without ruining the ride? Current travel us 120mm.

    That’s what I’m thinking, but not sure what the geometry of the frame would be like?

    i ran an ’05 with 120 forks quite happily

    then i got a betd suspension link plate which increased the rear to 130, jacked up the BB and changed the shock leverage ratio…….

    then i stuck some 150 bombers on the front.

    i could have gone down the route of angleset and offset bushings, but i bought an AS-X and combined it with a lovely hardtail.

    off the back of a fag pack, 1″ increase* at the front is approx 1 deg slacker

    *you can argue for ever if thats based on travel, sagged travel, A2C and then throw in manufacturer….

    I currently have 120 mm but would like 140 mm minimum.

    Get a pitch less risk of it being a dog.

    Sorry for the confusion – I meant getting the current suspension tuned properly (if possible).
