    Good idea? Bad idea? Thoughts for a short-arse 5’5″ rider please.

    It’ll add 20mm height to the front for the same travel. Not that that’s a problem! I wouldn’t bother unless you need new forks (and a new wheel) anyway.

    Yes, expect both wheel and fork to need replacing around the same time. Not in the market for a whole new bike and wondered whether the combo might work well for my stature in a 69-er ‘lite’ kind of way whilst also saving me from investing in old 26″ technology.
