Non-G2 fork will slow the steering down as it increases the Trail. Longer fork also increases Trail, so long non-G2 will increase the Trail figure a lot and hence slow down the handling a lot. 100mm non G2 might suit you OK?
G2 is 51mm offset – not as unusual as it used to be. Fox 34s are all 51mm offset for example, and it’s an option on some RS forks.
Best bang for buck option would be to buy Fontmoss’s Fox forks though…
i want to upgrade the g2 rockshox xc32 fork on my Trek mamba 29er. finding another g2 geometry fork is proving a little difficult.Has anyone got any suggestions for a reasonably priced replacement.Or can i fit a non g2 fork, but how will this effect the handling of the bike. I tried a Manitou 120mm non g2 fork but this cocked the handling right up when climbing, descending was ok. If i tried 100mm non g2 reba or recon for example would this be ok.
