iirc quite a few downhill bikes came with with 20-30mm less at the front than at the back. The original santa cruz v10 springs to mind.
probably best to ignore that one for the sake of this thread. V-10s are designed to have a log more sag (40%) than other bikes, so they effectively settle into the same position as an 8" bike but with a load more negative travel
Wrong, well only slightly. The V10 is meant to have 30%-35% Sag depending on if your riding or "hucking"
Also the travel difference is more than 20-30mm on it. The V10 has a quoted "254mm/10"" rear travel. As opposed too the forks SC specced and built it too "200mm/8""
I have ridden/owned quite a few bikes and I do agree that something like 160 100 would be great too ride. If the geometry is right for it.
