- Have I got this right?
Never one to chuck me cash about, but I think I should upgrade my fork. It’s a seven year old Pace RC36 100mm holding up a 2001 Tracer.
I’ve always used Pace forks, but I’m fed up with them going solid as soon as the temps drop or there’s a light drizzle in the air. And Adrians flogged that side of things, so I won’t be embarrased if I bump into him.
A bit of browsing tells me that the frame was designed to run with 100mm forks (which were long travel back then!) which would give head angles of around 71.5* or 70.5* (you can adjust it), also that increasing travel on the forks slackens those angles by 1* every 10mm.
So, if I put 120mm forks on the head angle would change to 69.5*, yes? If so, would this bugger up the handling? Can you feel a difference of 1*?

I was a bit tounge in cheek about 140mm.
Onzadog, have you tried slightly longer forks on it? You have got me thinking though; Chain Reaction have an ’09 32 F100 RL in the sales that could do the job.
Before that I’d been looking at the Rockshox Revelation Team Uturn 120/150 that On-One had going cheap.Posted 7 years ago
